couple of questions please.
Whats the bandage wrapping around the left hand branch (as you look at the picture)?
It looks like you just snapped off the branches you didnt want rather than prune them. Why did you do that apporach?
I have a bunch of seedlings sitting in a field, trying to grow.
I have just this weekend transitioned 20 cuttings from this spring into separate containers, as they had rooted, and wired up some 4, 5 year old cuttings. But if you mean, do I have juniper bonsai I grew from seed/cutting: no, not yet. 10-15 years to get some form of trunk..

Cuttings substrate looks like yours, but less organic I think.
Semi-shade, getting a bit of sun during the day.
Humid environment, check. (Watering, when feel like drying and waiting, since Dec/Jan)
Last month I thought they were rooted, but they fooled me, there was no root at all, but it was calloused at the bottom, I place them back on the substrate and let it be...
I just looked, and two of them seems to be growing a bit, but I'm just starting to think that for Junipers, maybe it's easier if you just forget it, keeping it hopeless, and if it root, great...
So far it seemed a lot easier just sow the seeds in winter, even stratifying was natural on these...
That's how they look today, the bigger one (on the bottom) has a yellowing needle. Don't know if that's a problem.
This are the cuttings. You can see that two of them has lime green tips, the other ones are pretty much dead.
Timing on those were bad, but I got those cuttings on work trip, so I considered this a bonus... Maybe I'll buy myself a decent Juniper sapling (knowing the variation) for Christmas.
