Miniature Magical Elegant Growing Bonsai Trees-faxuan.net

UnCategorized Introduction and History of Bonsai trees Bonsai gardening is a passion that originated when I found two natural Bonsai trees in a picnic site, adjacent to a delightful waterfall. One of the trees was a Banyan tree, located on a log that lay sandwiched above the river. The Banyan tree was only about 12inches in height. It was symmetrical and estimated to be over twenty years old. The roots grew on the dead tree log and therefore had nominal exposure to water and nutrients. Bonsai with the meaning of "Bon" stands for tray and "sai" denotes planting, is the art of nurturing miniature trees in flat pots, a Japanese and Chinese art with tradition stretching to the Egyptian pharaohs. Some of the oldest surviving Bonsai trees are present in a private garden-restaurant in Tokyo (Japan), more than five-hundred years old. Cultivation of Bonsai trees is achievable with any woody trees that have tiny leaves. Importance of adequate watering I favor evergreen or deciduous trees, depending on their quality, stem thickness and height. I choose glazed pots with designer shapes because they appear g.eous even after prolonged periods of time. Bonsai pots must have drainage holes, partially concealed, to deplete surplus water. I keep the pot in the exterior where it gets abundant sunlight. The weather is excruciatingly scorching so the trees require more water. Watering, in small quantity, is done at frequent intervals, roughly twice every day, during dawn and dusk. Watering with cans satisfies the nutritional requirements for Bonsai trees and removes surplus storage of salts in the tree. You must take care to avoid excessive watering since Bonsai tree rots or gets infected with fungus. Replanting Bonsai trees Deciduous trees require more water than evergreen trees. Repotting and pruning, at regular intervals, controls growth and accelerates the development of new roots, essential for absorption of water. Maintaining adequate care ensures that the tree survives the impact of transplanting. Trimming roots and shaping trees are viable during repotting, undertaken at regular intervals, during which negligence reduces the tree’s survival rate. Tools requirement for potting Bonsai trees Cutters of different sizes, rake, leaf trimmer, wire cutter, jack for bending branches, etc. are important equipments for Bonsai cultivation. Pruning, cutting and shaping is performed only with the appropriate tools. The mixture of sand, clay, gravel plus manure in equal proportions is essential along with regular applications of .anic or chemical fertilizer and sunlight, for successfully growing Bonsai trees. Pruning techniques Bonsai trees are miniature in size due to frequent pruning of roots and branches. I prune the trees with exceptionally sharp shears that instantly cuts the portion which requires trimming. It is also essential to maintain the primary design of the tree, induce branching and redirect growth in specific directions. The person who clips the stem, root or leaves should be careful not to decimate the tree. Shaping Bonsai trees Copper or aluminum wires and clamps, due to their malleable nature, are indispensable to mold Bonsai trees to a particular shape. I usually cut the wires bound to the tree rather than risking any damage to the branches, after the tree transforms its contour. It approximately takes a year for the tree to coagulate. Thereby I ensure that the Bonsai tree suits my intended designs. Important tips and Conclusion Watering Bonsai with sprays or watering cans guarantees that soil does not splatter outside the pot. By covering drainage holes in the pot with small pieces of screening, the soil does not leak. Don’t clip more than half of the roots or trunks in the Bonsai while pruning. Bonsai tree cultivation and manicure entails dexterity, and it is possible to obtain natural Bonsai trees from gardens, forests, swamps, etc. Several horticultural shops and online stores sell them for reasonable prices About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
