Hello, I bought a Juniper last month and I have been struggling to keep it in peak condition. I have two questions about it that I am hoping can be answered. The first question regards watering. I have been watering it every 2-4 days. I am having a hard time gauging how much it should be watered. I stick my finger about half an inch into the soil, and if it is wet, I won't water it. If it is dry, I will water it. The tree is turning brown from the inside, at the botanist I talked to said that this could be a sign of over watering. My other fear is that it isn't getting enough sun. I will bring it outside on sunny days, but the temperature outside can reach 100 degrees, so I am reluctant to do so. When I have it indoors, I have 2 grow lights focused on it for over 12 hours a day. However, the room it is in does not get much natural sun. So I guess my two questions are: "Am I watering incorrectly?" and " Are the two grow lights enough, or do I need to find a way for my tree to get more light?"
Other useful information:
The room is kept at 68-74 degrees Fahrenheit (20-23 Celsius) and I mist it once a day
