Hi Rosa,

Thanks for Stopping by!

Ok, so this looks very much like a Juniper.........I would say about 3-4 years old.

Basically observe a standard watering regimen, about once daily for most of the year, until it gets a little hot and depending on where you live (if its hot), twice daily throughout summer - once in the morning and once at night - never in direct sunlight though. This will burn the foliage if you splash any on the needles......

The 'green green' stuff he gave you may be a type of fertilizer - only use this in Spring.

You can check out our Juniper Guide on the tabs to your left and some our care guide, also on your left!

Thanks again for stopping by!

My tree has darker green shiney ovalish leaves on it. The trunk is a lighter brown (almost like a white) and it has a lot of leaves on it. I know thats not being very descriptive but I cant upload a picture.


Hi Brandon,

this sounds very much like a Chinese Elm. Refer to our guides on different species and search for similarities!

Hope that helps!
