Juniperus communis “Green carpet”, June 2016

 

I bought a small juniper in a garden center, 12€. It looked very joyful and happy plant…until it came to my hands 😀

I planned long time ago to create a plant on a red plate-like pot so I did it with this one. Progression of the process:

Placed on the “plate”

And finally finished “product” with moss set around its roots:

I have honestly no clue if this was a good idea. The time will show if the new growth appears and if moss is not a bad thing for the roots inside. I noticed that drying is slowed down substantially and I am not sure it is very good but I liked the idea of the moss “cake” on the plate 🙂
