Hi, I'm 16 and I love gardening/plants in general. I've always wanted a bonsai, and today (my birthday) my sister picked one up for me from someone selling them on the side of a road. After doing some research, I've determined that it must be some sort of juniper. I've read a bit about general maintenance, but does anyone have a certain website/book to recommend? Thanks!
Also, I would love to shape this lil' guy into the cascade style, does any one have any suggestions as to how I could start? Thanks again!
---And I have a feeling the pot is too large, where would I be able to get a smaller and better quality one? Thanks.
(Also, sorry if this is technically in the wrong section of the forum, when I first posted this message I had no idea what sort of bonsai I had...but hopefully I can still get some tips!)
Here are a couple pictures.
