Today we continue with the previous post on how to grow a bonsai from seed. We’ll see what steps we should follow after germination of the seeds of bonsai.
If you still have any questions or have not read the previous post I recommend you do so you can learn the process from the beginning and follow it more clearly.
Once the seeds have germinated, you should reduce the ambient temperature. The excess heat causes small plants grow too quickly making them thin and weak.
The most important step now is to explain transplanting bonsai buds to space them so they can grow properly,
You must take special care in handling outbreaks because their stems are still weak and can spoil. Also if you do take an outbreak of a leaf (usually have two sheets but can also have a solo), grab them before the stem.
Upon germination, the protective cover removed from the nursery and continues to water in a container with a little water. When moisture soaks the substrate to the surface, remove the seed and wait until the excess moisture to drain.
Avoid wetting the leaves as they can get sick especially if the temperature is low. Remember that wet and cold conditions cause disease in bonsai as fungi.
Once the bud leaves touch each other, transplanting to another tray so they can be spaced. The day before transplanting the sprouts, water the soil.
IMPORTANT: It is best to transplant the sprouts when younger and smaller than when they are high. This is because the small root better and more mature than their stems may have hardened. Be especially careful not to push young shoots ever.
Use a spoon or a fork lift, very carefully, a group of plants the seed and place it on a wet piece of paper, make sure the roots do not dry out.
Fills larger seedlings with soil and share it to 12mm below the rim. Use a small planter (or stick) to make holes about 18mm deep, the row over close to the edge of the container should be about 12-18mm of it.
Place the seeds one by one. Hold each plant leaf, never by the stem, and place it so that its roots are freely within each hole. Use again the planter to place soil around the roots.
When the nursery is full, hit the edges gently to level the surface loose substrate. Next, place the seed on a horizontal surface with good drainage to irrigate abundantly how it looks in the photo.
This helps settle the soil around the roots. Do not expose plants to direct sunlight, as it is difficult to get the substrate kept moist until the roots take hold.
Now have to wait. Remember the basics on how to grow a bonsai: keep the substrate moist, do not expose the plants to extreme temperatures and be attentive to their development.
Note that the process of shoot development can take weeks or even months, have patience, everything comes.
