Plant Care: Sunlight, Watering, Soil, and Repotting

Sunlight Needs

Juniper Golden thrives in full sun to partial shade. Indoor plants should be placed near a window that gets plenty of natural light, but be cautious of too much direct sun, which may scorch the leaves.

Water Needs

This plant is drought-tolerant, and it’s better to be underwater than overwater. Water the plant moderately, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings to prevent root rot.

Soil Type

Juniper Golden prefers well-draining, sandy soil. Regular potting soil mixed with a bit of coarse sand works well.


Repotting should be done every two to three years or when the plant outgrows its pot. This gives you an opportunity to check on the plant’s root health and refresh the soil.

Common Problems and Remedies

Inadequate Light

If the vibrant golden colour of your Juniper Golden starts to fade, it might be getting too little light. Relocate the plant to a brighter location but avoid harsh direct sunlight.


Juniper Golden is a drought-tolerant plant, and overwatering can lead to root rot. If the plant’s health declines despite proper light, check your watering schedule.

Spider Mites

Spider mites can be a problem for conifers. If you notice small yellow spots on the leaves, isolate the plant immediately to prevent the mites from spreading and treat with a mild insecticide.
