Hello!
This week I went on a work trip, and I found a tree that pretty much looks like a kind of Juniper to my untrained eyes, it has this scales that ressembles cords, like the shimpaku…

I was so happy, because I never saw that kind of conifer around here…
So I brought some branches for cuttings and some seeds.

I know some Junipers has cones, some has berries, but...
Is it possible to tell if that’s a Juniper or another kind of Cypress? I know it may be hard to tell due to the many variations on the species/family... I just wanted to know if someone more experienced could tell...

The common cypresses I know, has palm like scales.
I just added a image that shows it's pollen containers.

Hello ppl.

Apparently it's some kind of Juniperus Chinesis, maybe Kaizuka...

I made several cuttings of it 2 months ago (on tinny grain gravel which I don't have a translation for xD), and it seems like some of them did rooted as you can see on the picture. I tried from it's seeds as well, bot not even a single one germinated.

As I never had a juniper or cuttings of it, I'm wondering what should I do now? Let it on same pot? on the shade as it is? brighter spot?
I guess they may have very small roots by now, and I don't want to loose already rooting cuttings by don't knowing what to do.

I know it's not much of a bonsai question, as those are just cuttings, but I think that most of you already had some experience with juniper cuttings.

I normally leave them in the cuttings tray and only the spring after they have rooted plant them out. That being said, your cuttingstray looks to have tall sides. I think I would pot them in individual pots, if convinced rooting has started.
