Creating black cork bark pine – tracking

bonsai general - 21 views



Earlier this year I have grafted a few stems of cork bark to 3 years old, black pine (see “Creating bark cork black “pine). As new outbreaks in the bags graft began to harden, I opened the large bags to avoid rotting foliage. A few weeks later I removed the tape shading stems and opened the top of the bags.

I prefer to use masking tape to duct tape as it lets more light and it is easier to apply.

I will remove the rest of the bags in a few weeks, but leave the tape holding the stems in place until next year. I will also protect trees in winter because the stems are still fragile at this point.
