Bonsai - 63 views
Watering a bonsai may not seem like a big deal, it’s just a plant, after all, right? This is true, are nothing more than miniature trees that have been placed in pots for viewing. It is also true that you can just grab a shower and water if you know what you’re doing. The key to bringing this article is to ensure that all dirt has a chance to absorb some water. If you take a watering can and pour some water on one side of the pot and walks away, the roots will die on the other side. This will leave you with a dead plant and no idea why it happened. For this reason I am posting this blog on the two most common methods of how to water a bonsai.
This is the preferred method for most coaches bonsai method. It takes a little more time and effort, but their trees really appreciate. In this method, a large container filled with water to just above the height of the pot (s). Then place the pot in the water so that the whole boat is submerged in water. Let your tree sit there for three to five minutes before removing it and let the excess water runs out. Then return the tree to its original location after it has stopped dripping to prevent a disaster.
We prefer this method because it is a fictitious form tested to ensure the whole pot wet. To soak, we know that all the dirt in the pot has had enough time to absorb the water.
If you do not have the means or time to let the tree soaking, you can use a watering can if you know what you are doing. With a sprinkler, water the entire surface of the soil and let it soak. After a few seconds, pour a little more to make sure everything is soaked. Repeat this procedure until you see water dripping from the bottom of the pot. If you do not see the water, the soil is not completely soaked.
The most common mistake is the owner splash some water on the tree and walk away. This prevents the tree from the possibility of expanding root mass due to dry areas. dried roots quickly die as the tree tries to focus all its energy on the area that has the soil moist.
