I've inherited a sick juniper and best I can tell the nursery bark mulch type soil is the culprit (apparently it was outside and watered properly). I know it's not generally recommended to repot a less-than-healthy tree, but I'd like to get it into something healthier where it can recover for a couple years. My plan is to remove most but not all existing soil around the roots, leave any healthy roots in place, and pot it in a larger pot. Would you recommend bonsai soil (1/3rd Akadama, 1/3rd Pumice, and 1/3rd Lava) for this, or something more organic? Other suggestions? Thanks!
