bonsai general - 33 views
remember the days when Moss was the enemy. The idea was that the moss prevents water penetration, or pot is kept too wet. So it was a surprise when I was an apprentice to Mr. Suzuki encouraged moss growing on the ground, and discovered that there were some advantages to having there.
the advantages are as follows:.
1-Help holding capacity of water near the surface where it dries faster
2-creates much greater root growth in the top layer of soil that is otherwise too dry way to the roots. From a bonsai pot is largely limited space, this is very significant.
3-prevents soil erosion
4 Da sense of stability one year, age, and cleaning
