  • Title: Japanese styles
    Descriptive info: Japanese styles.. A bonsai should replicate an old tree, in a miniaturized fashion.. In order to create a miniature tree, you must cut the branches on a regular basis.. Despite the fact that it's easy to achieve the small size, it's much more complicated to make a tree look old.. This is the reason why you should study ordinary trees which can be found in forests; only if you understand their growth, can you make your bonsai look similar.. The Japanese have been studying nature for ages.. That's why we call bonsais styles „Japanese.. “.. The Upright Style.. This style is characterized by the tree's base which is the primary axis leading from the top to bottom.. Branches should grow alternately, no two branches of the same width should grow the same distance from the bonsai's base.. It is very important to make all branches (within the first 70% of height) heading to the left or right side.. Branches growing on the highest 30% of the tree can be orientated forward as well as backward.. All branches must slope downwards, or must be horizontal at least.. Generally, there are two minor styles within the upright style.. The first can be called „formal“ and the second's name could be „informal“.. It depends if the base is incurved or not.. The informal style is usually formed into the „S“ style with branches growing from the outside edges of curves.. The informal style is very suitable for spruce trees.. Fig 1.. : The Formal Upright style.. Fig 2.. : The Informal Upright style.. The Fan style.. This style is used for forming leafy bonsais only.. The base divides itself into 2 or 3 equivalent branches which grow in all directions.. It's necessary to make some of the main branches visible.. In order to understand this style, you should watch trees during winter.. Fig 3.. : The Fan style.. The Bevelled style.. The bevelled style is characterized by a sloping base.. Although it's easy to achieve this look, bear in mind that branches must be orientated horizontally or they should slope down, towards to the pot.. Fig 4.. : The Bevelled style.. The Double-Base style.. In my opinion, this style is one of the most beautiful.. In  ...   result in this fascinating look.. Fig 7.. : The Storm style.. The Barge style.. This style can be found in nature if a tree's base falls.. This might be caused by erosion, storms, hurricanes, or anything that can break the trunk.. If the tree survives, small branches develop themselves into trunks and they usually don't have common top.. If you decide to use this style, bear in mind that both the primary trunk and roots shouldn't be visible.. Fig 8.. : The Barge style.. The Forest style.. Three or more independent trees in one pot create the forest style.. However, every tree should be of a different age; Older and wider trees should be planted in the front.. It's not recommended to mix leafy and spruce trees together.. Be careful, because distances between trees should vary, otherwise it would not look natural.. Fig 9.. : The Forest style.. The Cascade style.. This style is characterized by the trunk being orientated to one side, and the crown isn't the highest point of the tree.. This style can be found on trees which grow on snowy places.. In order to achieve this look, you must be patient and careful too; Heavy wiring or tightening would damage or even kill the tree.. Fig 10.. : The Cascade style.. The Tree in a Rock style.. You need a rock for this style.. The roots are embedded inside of that rock and the pot is placed in a bowl with water.. The Tree on a Rock style.. Unlike the previous style, this one needs a small rock and tree's roots are planted in the soil.. Fig 11.. : The Tree on a Rock style.. The Literati style.. The literary style is characterized by very high and slim bases.. They are usually formed in interesting ways and have only a few twigs.. Fig 12.. : The literati style..

  • Title: Replanting and cutting the roots
    Descriptive info: Replanting and cutting the roots.. Just like all plants,.. grow too - even though remaining little.. Their growth is accompanied with the growth of the roots.. When the roots fill out the pot completly, it is the right time to replant it into a bigger pot, which allows the tree to have more free space for growing.. Replanting.. No matter if you're experienced a bit or if you're a newbie, youl'll have to replant your tree once for the first time.. So the basic questions stands as "When should I replant my.. ?" The answer is very simple, it's best to replant a tree in the beginning of growing season.. Besides the right moment, it's necessary to use the soil very wisely, since it must be of good quality which includes attributes like porosity, etc.. The soild must contain enough air when it comes to.. , it should offer good pH values which are required by each.. differently.. Moreover, the substrate must be able to bind nutriment in the state which allows trees to take and use them easily.. Basically, the best soil for.. is a mix of ordinary soil, peat and sand.. Bear in mind that those elements must be mixed in a pre-defined ration in order to satisfy the bonsai's requirements and to make it live happily.. Like humans, every miniaturized tree has different requirements; This difference is the ratio.. Sometimes it's possible to replace the sand with another mixture which will allow the soil to be more aerated.. We can use pearlite, granulated clay (akadama) or ceramsite.. for this purpose.. Let's go through the most common types of.. soil.. Indoor trees usually demand this ratio:.. (Soil 1): 4 parts of argillaceous rock, 4 parts of peat, 2 parts of sand or akadama with granularity 2-4 mm;.. (Soil 2): 3 parts of argillaceous rock, 5 parts of peat, 2 parts of sand or akadama with granularity 2-4 mm;.. Use following ratio for outdoor bonsais:.. (Soil 3; basic): 1 part of argillaceous rock, 2 parts of peat, 2 parts of sand or akadama with granularity 2-4 mm;.. (Soil 4; pervious): 1 part of argillaceous rock, 1 parts of peat, 3 parts of sand or akadama  ...   low, use 1g of CaCO3 per 1 litre of substrate which will increase pH from about 1/2 to 3/4.. Of course, you can buy special.. soil in various shops devoted to.. , or gardening tools shops nowadays.. This is the best way for beginners in my opinion.. On the other hand, professionals mix their own substrates.. The.. guide, which is present on this site contains details of which kind of soil each tree demands.. Roots cutting.. Many people suppose that roots cutting will result in stopping the growth or even they think the tree will die.. I must disagree, since proper maintenance of roots turns to desired design and helps the tree to grow "as we wish".. Naturally, cutting roots is very delicate and should be done very wisely.. First, remove the.. from a pot in order to see how it's roots grow.. If they muffle around the bottom of pot, it's the time for cutting.. Basically, roots cutting isn't as easy as twigs cutting if you do it for the first time.. It's because roots are branched less or more.. Roots cutting should go hand-in-hand with leafs cutting, because roots deliver.. into the entire tree and.. evaporates through leafs.. Once you disrupt the stability, your tree could come into troubles and could die too.. After cutting roots for the first time, the tree will develop new roots and you'll see them next time when you cut them.. Further cuttings should be easier than the first one.. Roots cutting should be done after purifying roots from soil.. Dead roots should be removed at first by special.. scissors.. Reduce living roots by about 50%.. However, when cutting a tree for the first time, you shouldn't remove more than 20% of roots.. Monitor the tree if it recovers.. If the tree drops leafs, you've removed more roots than necessary.. Immediately remove leafs and move the tree to a dampy place in order to reduce the evaporation process.. Once it will develop new leafs you can move it back to it's original place and position..

  • Title: Fertilization of bonsai trees
    Descriptive info: The nutrition of plants is the essential premise of their healthy growing.. Plants require nutrition for transformation of substances.. They (plants) produce substances needed for growth and these substances are created via chemical processes and assimilation.. Basically, plants need some minerals for proper growth and these minerals are accepted through roots from the soil.. The primary nutriments (macroelements).. nitrogen (N).. phosphorus (P).. potassium (K).. sulphur (S).. magnesium (Mg).. calcium (Ca).. Trace elements (microelements).. iron (Fe).. manganese (Mn).. zinc (Zn).. copper (Cu).. boron (B).. molybdenum (Mo).. As soon as the plant exhausts all nutriments from the substrate (which occurs about 3-4 weeks after replanting) it is necessary to start fertilization.. It's all because the plant has bounded amount of soil and it can't get new minerals in another way than fertilization.. This is why a proper fertilization is very important aspect of successful growing of.. The fertilizers.. You should use some multi-part fertilizers (NPK) with trace elements for any fertilization.. There are many industrial fertilizers on the market which are also suitable for bonsai's.. It is recommended to buy those products which were designed for your.. exactly.. In addition, you can buy fertilizers for spruce trees, leafy trees, etc.. It is because different trees require different ratio of elements.. For example,.. blooming trees need more phosphorus during the bloom.. In comparison, trees which are producing.. seeds.. and fruits need more nitrogen.. Of course, there are all-purpose fertilizers for all kinds of plants and you probably don't do anything badly if you decide to use them as well.. The long-time effect fertilizers.. If you have troubles meet the fertilization schedule with a liquid fertilizer, you can try slow melting fertilizers.. Such products should be applied to the soil once per 3-4 months.. Actually, such fertilizers are in the solid state.. Quantization is given by amount of soil in the pot.. This is why it is necessary to precisely measure the weight of the substrate and only then you can choose quantization.. The fertilizer  ...   they have balanced proportion between their substances, eventually a little higher concentration of nitrogen.. Of course, check these aspects if only you are buying one fertilizer for all plants.. Plants must not be fertilized if it's dry.. Before the fertilization process, you should make the roots a little wet.. And of course, it is better to fertilize periodically with lower concentration than once with high concentration.. The organic-mineral fertilizers.. This kind of fertilizers secure you long-time activity (organic part) and fast activity (mineral part).. Be careful because you can easily over-fertilise the.. If you used higher quantization than it is recommended by the producer, you can damage your plant and it can later die.. The concentration is dependent on the amount of soil.. Sift 2g of fertilizer on the substrate surface per 1 litre of soil every 4 weeks, and.. it.. If you don't.. your.. properly, the underbrush and moss can be die.. The leaf fertilizers.. Plants are able to accept nutriments through their leafs as well.. Leafs fertilization acts immediately and directly.. Plants are fertilized with a spray directly on leafs.. The spray must not have concentration higher than 0.. 1% (1ml or 1g per 1 litre of.. ).. The trace elements.. Sometimes there could be problems with your.. when one or more trace elements are missing in the soil.. In such case it is necessary to determine the missing element and use the proper fertilizer (which contains such element(s), of course) in order to eliminate the absence.. When to fertilize.. Replanted.. with fleeced roots shouldn't be fertilized earlier than the roots grow throughout the pot.. In general this means approximately 8 weeks..

  • Title: How to water your bonsai

It gives your garden an attractive appeal and a feel of elegance.. That is why it's important to know how to properly water your.. are not your regular flower and plant.. There is a proper method of watering these beautiful.. You have to know the reasons behind the logic of watering the.. Follow the steps carefully on the following paragraph to ensure that you won't overdo it.. Before you can start watering you should understand the reasons why a plant requires water.. Acceptance and transport of nutriments, carrying minerals into the place of their usage, maintenance of pressure inside cells, biochemical reactions; Every of these operations need water.. Also, there must be a stability between incoming and outgoing water in plant elements.. If anything causes violation of this stability, for instance if there were more outgoing than incoming water, then the plant will damp off in stages.. If this state lasts longer, the tree will die.. Moreover, different seasons mean different demands.. How much water can.. accept? This depends on water amount, air temperature, humidity, sunshine, air circulation and few other aspects.. Bear in mind that too much water isn't good for the plant.. This causes deficient aeration of soil and lower substrate temperature, which negatively affects the growth process.. If streaming continues it might lead to decomposition of roots and entire.. later.. A young tree with less leafs require less water than old heavily leafed.. Basically, a tree should be watered more during hot days than  ...   be harder than 12 German degrees.. If there is no soft water at your location, you can always use various products for softening.. If you live in house, it is recommended to catch the rain water into barrel.. Such water is usually soft and acid, and bonsai's prefer it in general.. Except some species which require hard and alkaline waters.. Unfortunately there is not enough space for watering inside the pot.. That is why you should rather do watering with small watering-can very carefully.. In some cases the borders (pot borders) will be watered enough, however the tree could stay dry.. Then the soil abstracts from pot borders.. These factors may lead to the situation when water flows through the pot walls instead of the substrate.. Answer for this problem is really simple; Immerse the entire pot and.. into some container and make sure that the whole pot with roots of your.. are under water.. The result is that air will disappear from the substrate.. You will know when this happens once no bubbles come out from the pot and soil.. Big bonsai's usually require watering done few times a day, first time before sunrise and second time after sunset.. Really big trees can be watered during the day as well (in my experience you can do so with small trees, but be careful).. Leafs should stay dry during the daytime, otherwise they could burn.. Generally, leafs could be misted and dusted.. If the substrate is wet enough, the water evaporates and it's temperature lowers.. You should feel comfortable chill after putting a hand on it.. I hope that these basic advice will help you when watering your bonsai's.. Post a comment on How to water your bonsai.. This article has been viewed 16168 time(s)..
