The last picture here needs some explanation, since any use of a ladder and a roof goes beyond the usual technique … But bonsái to address the serious “central part” of this post first, I thought that a series of notes on Chojubai could help get to know this little rascal a little better because it is so little known.

This time we will talk about its bark. All Chojubai are not the same. There is not a single gene out there. Among other differences, Chojubai have different speeds development bark, bark rough form a corky bark looking in a few years some who seem to have no appreciable crust found even after twenty years develops. For all of them, however, if we are growing the hard tree trunk diameter, then the bark will not start until the formation of slow things down and keep it in a bonsai pot.

The following are some photos of the Chojubai cortex


tree twenty five years old with something common to older Chojubai, which exfoliating bark near the base. Smooth surfaces are where the greatest bark has fallen off. This is more common in the thick trunked trees. trees concentration thinner multiple bonds and are less likely to shed bark.


Another oldest tree, perhaps 40 years old, with a lot of crust out. To maintain strong and flourishing tree and fertilizer is important, but you may want to limit some fertilizer with older trees to minimize shedding bark.


young branch, only two years old.


Another younger branch several years, beginning with the bark of silver.

anterior branches of about 25 years with proven crust that is typical of Chojubai. Other types of flowering Japanese quince, as Toyonishiki not create bark of this nature. In the upper branches of the crust Chojubai proven you can keep for decades because they do not develop in the circle very quickly.


All four grounds we grow flowers in a Chojubai, bright photo-marked bark, branching patterns idiosyncratic, and tiny leaves.


Bobby Chojubai point of trying Test # 349, also known as the Roof Chojubai Toss. This experiment was decided after it seemed impossible to be detrimental to a Chojubai by physical means, after witnessing some young branches broken in half in the spring and grew through a very hot summer without a blink. Hence the Roof Toss to test the outer limits of Chojubai, performance art, bad art and bad idea at once.
