This is such a common question, i would recommend searching the forum. Everybody has their own preferences, and it comes down to local conditions and care. Search, come to a conclusion and then ask a.bit.more specific question.

Yes thank you I have looked it up but I guess I should have better worded my question. I know a good soil but I was looking for opinion on what other ppl use, I was going to try a akadoma, pumice and lava rock mixture. Thank you

Akadama lava rock perlite pumice zeolite all these can be good it really is a matter of choice and preference, but I would never use akadama to juniper

Why not on a juniper? Maybe use a compost soil instead of akadoma?
