New Bonsai - Japanese Juniper?

Hello there, I was wondering if people could help me identify my new Bonsai tree. With a little research, I'm under the impression that this is a Japanese Juniper tree, but would like a little reassurance.


Thank you very much in advanced.

Yes, most likely Juniperus procumbens "nana", a favorite of mass-market bonsai. Please read up here and elsewhere, this tree needs to be outside.

yup thats a juniper and with a little are sum repoting and sum wireing it could eb a really nice cascade. its got to be put outside or its gonna start to yellow and then it will die so get it on a shelf out in the sun and watch it grow like mad :D
