TOPIC: Is there still hope?

Is there still hope? 3 months 4 weeks ago #37252

I got my Junier Bonsai as a gift back in November. I kept it inside at first as that is what the seller recommended. After researching it was clear the Juniper is an outdoor bonsai, but I hesitated moving it outside because I thought it would be a shock. The leaves started turning yellowish recently and I decided to move it outside about 2 weeks ago but it has not improved. I have been watering when the soil looks dry, and mist it because it is very dry where I am. At night it gets around 34 degrees Fahrenheit. What can I do to keep it alive? Do you think it is temperature related, watering, or something else entirely?

I am afraid that is what happens to junipers inside. There is nothing left to safe there. It is dead i am afraid.

I don't think there's any hope now.
First, the watering: misting 'n drowning surely is not the best way to keep it happy.
Second, keeping it inside just kills junipers.
I am sorry for your tree.

if you have never killed a tree, you are not doing bonsai
