TOPIC: Urgent!

Urgent! 1 year 8 months ago #30187

I met my bonsai as a new year gift. I am a beginner bonsai grower, so I don't have any idea about my bonsai's disease. This topic can be talked before but I have to solve my bonsai's problem quickly. I am sharing the pictures of my bonsai. Can anybody help me?

In bonsai, things cannot be urgent. This problem too cannot be solved quickly either. This is not something that suddenly happens, but it is the cause of long term incorrect care.

Without knowing what you have been doing, I have to make guesses:
- You are keeping it indoors. Junipers belong outdoors.
- You have been overwatering it.

Does the pot it is in have a drainage hole?

Indeed this issue has been discussed many times. I suggest you search for 'Juniper'. Also look up 'Mallsai'.

Thank you for your answer. I am a new in this field, and I will try to survive my bonsai.
-Yes, I am keeping it indoor, because of the minus temperatures in Ankara, Turkey. I didn't located it directly sunlight. I will read How-To section of this website. Certainly, I have done something wrong.
-Actually, I didn't water it before the dry it, and I water it via a spoon.
Thanks God! It has a drainage hole which was created before the met me :)
I will search those keywords.

That 's good - though I wouldn't water it with a spoon. Junipers belong outside, they can tolerate cold. However, don't bring it outdoors now if it is very cold, as the plant won't be used to it...

I'm not sure, but did I see web on the tree? I looked closely, and think I see what appears to be webs on the tree.

I saw it but I thought it was a reflection. You are right, it 's not a reflection, it are webs. Spider mites?

I believe so. Perhaps one issue of a few.

So, the verdict:

What you have is a low quality plant, that cannot really be called a bonsai.
This is a commercial product that hasn't received the care and training a real bonsai would have gotten.
It has been indoors, where it doesn't belong.
It is infected with what looks like spider mite
The plant is already turning yellow - these parts will die. There is little life left.

Treat it against spider mite ( www.wikihow.com/Get-Rid-of-Spider-Mites )
Water it properly. Try to get it outdoors as soon as the temperatures are not too low (don't know your local climate and temperatures).

Then still the chances for this plant are very slim.
