Why is my Spartan Juniper Brown?
Similarly, it is asked, how do you keep junipers from turning brown?
Spray the bottom of the leaves, where spider mites feed, using a water hose with a high-pressure nozzle. Combine 3 tablespoons of vegetable-oil based soap with 1 gallon of water and add the solution to a spray bottle. Mist the underside of the juniper leaves with the solution.
Secondly, can Brown juniper come back? If the branches are flexible and full of sap, they're still alive. If they're brittle and dry, they're dead and won't come back. Some of the “brown” junipers that are still alive will put out new growth in the spring, but it will be from the tips of branches.
In respect to this, how do I know if my juniper is dying?
Take a knife or a fingernail and gently scrape a small bark off the trunk. If the color is green then most likely the bonsai tree is still alive but if the color of the trunk is greyish or dark brown then it could be a sign that the bonsai tree is suffering or the tree is dead.
