bonsai general - 31 views
Many trees and their roots away from any saturated thing, which is the bottom of the pot. Two in particular, pines and azaleas. And muddling over the western world bonsai have been obsessed by the number of pine trees planted in shallow containers.
“rules” are slippery things, like anything in bonsai has exceptions. So consider this a “slippery rule” a “you may want to consider ‘, and not necessarily a” damn you’d better do it or get hit with a bamboo stick’ type of offer – but please, in usually get their conifers, including pines, in deeper pots, and deciduous could go in the most superficial as it can get away with horticultural yours.
Now that the disclaimers. Inhale. (That is for me).
Of course you can plant your pine in a shallow pot (strong whack a stick on fingers), but note that piling up. It piling up and get live moss established will help in drying the root ball shaped like a pine wants. Mounding help drain excess water, and moss prevents excessive drying of the surface, which may sound like a contradiction, but it works.
The content area of any tree is quite specific. The top often much dry. The fund could stay too wet. And the pine likes the middle. So most of the pots should be pines deeper happy to expand that area. Or, if mound for a tree 3 “above the lip on a 3” pot chicken, t you have given essentially the shaft 6 “of growing space and a fairly large area happy. little pots deep in the bunjin conifer, groups, and forests are good examples in the mounds is suitable and is often used.
without a free surface and water retaining erosion, however, like moss live, mounding is unlikely to be a happy equation. search ‘moss’ in the search field upper right part of my blog, and you should find some items of moss there and how to establish it. I think I’ve written a few.
happy pots! Or at rest, if you are in the southern hemisphere.
