How to make the “olive bonsai”- This time, we will introduce the olive bonsai of how to make using a small leaf of olive which is said to bonsai direction. Olive bonsai itself, still less in the country, “bonsai olive should be doing!” it Does not yet tree form of bonsai as the underlying of such. Although it is even good to the massive Holding was tree form, such as tree species Japan, crisp images with the olive Mediterranean look good, and to freely express to fit the image of the hand to make it such as to represent the foliage fluttering in the wind I think or even fun. This time, I was finishing at the center and making the tree form the underlying considering the way to the future of growth as a bonsai olive, that as soon as you can enjoy as an ornamental, these two points.
First of all, be in the beginning most is a good look at how per direction and leaves coming out of the branch, to decide its direction has established a stem that becomes the core. And, extra leaves, I will especially off the leaves of the stem close to the bowl. Branches and pruning while watching the balance. I think when you as a branch in the left and right alternately have come to be balanced manner good. Where it is in the trigeminal, because she cans Cobb in part of its branching, is even point to pruning so that as much as possible bifurcated.
Then I will put the wire. Olive trees in order to create a form so hard to be deceptively use a little thicker wire. This time, the 3mm of wire in the stem, the thin branches, I used 1.2mm, the 1.8mm.
First of all I am subjected to stem. Cut diagonally to stick firmly to soil the tip of the wire along the stem and insert deeply into part of the root. And stem of shape and wrap them feeling loosened so as to be at regular intervals from a long distance along the core. Hang the wire to thin branches when you have finished over the stem. Is the point to put the wire in all branches, including thin branches.
What kind of finish to work? It is the largest highlight. This time, we would like to express the “olive fluttering “. I think when you work with a theme something to be or likely to image.
Soil you use this time, 3 Akadama and (small) pumice the: use those mixed at a ratio of 1. Olive will not let larger amount of mixing pumice because drainage is the most points. Put one third degree soil to pre-bowl you set the pot network. Then I dropped soil about one-third of the around the roots. Roots are popping out in that case I will trim with pruning shears. Put the soil in implantation around the bowl, and thrust the soil in the root oyster chopsticks so as to fill the gap, and prepares adding the soil to further empty surface.
This time, I tried to crawl the moss because it is an object of the present invention ornamental in-room such as the living room. Completed by attaching the moss so that there is no gap with a pair of tweezers! Different from the image which is said to be traditional so-called bonsai, we have brilliantly created a new bonsai in the form of olive unique that has combined Western-style finish,
Upon this time of this feature, one of the benefits of creating a bonsai in pots of Western-style not look only, you rose that not ease of management than bonsai. It is characterized by what many of the shallow shape without almost the height of the pot for bonsai. Therefore, hot day in it is easy to dry, it will hurt the immediately roots when you off guard. In contrast, when is pot Western has sufficient depth, and I compared to shallow sum bowl because larger amount of water retention was Akadama can reduce the number of watering! So, it is especially recommended for daily busy people!This page is often found with these terms
