Once again we will get into the deep waters of writing about the basics of bonsai. This time, watering. Of course, there are many irrigation methods …

Watering-plants-like-a-bosses

This method seems a bit irregular. Watering bonsai should be more uniform, with less concerned with our own needs timing. The golden rule is taught us is that we want to wait until the soil dries out a bit before watering again. And in broad strokes, this is accurate.

But let’s refine this idea a bit. To begin with, those trees that have recently replanted

  • A tree is replanted that has a dense root mass, as a well established bonsai is likely to dry very quickly. Keep a careful eye on the inside, that the root solid mass that is put back into the pot (which should be showing a little on the surface, so you can see). You may end up watering very often.
  • When replant a tree with a weak root system, you will notice that it tends to take a while to dry. A tree with only a few roots can not set well if we are watering too often with the same cycle as the above. You may want to wait a little longer to water these trees, and how much longer is what skill is irrigation.

Sometimes ‘wait a little longer’ means waiting a few more hours. Sometimes it is waiting a few more days. That’s the part we can not talk online, that part has to be learned in person.

be alert to a tree suddenly you need very little water. If the soil remains moist maybe one of several things:

  1. There may be a tree that just stopped their growth cycle of spring, and you will find that you will irrigate about half frequency. This is normal.
  2. Another situation with moist soil is a tree that has a drainage problem-some containers require additional holes drilled for good drainage; others need to be tipped so that excess water drains out and to help establish the tree after transplantation.
  3. There may be a tree with a root problem if the soil remains moist. The way we get root rot is if it dries completely after losing a couple of irrigations, killing some roots, then it is watered frequently this causes the dead roots rot.
  4. look up to see if it’s raining.
  5. Make sure your child has his shorts on.

When we irrigate a healthy tree, go through it with water at least twice. containers and systems more compacted deeper roots may need a third or fourth pass before it was doused.

There are many goals to irrigation, and many things to keep a look out for watered differently according to health, training objectives, species, sample, season, soil and that’s where the words again begin to fail us, and workplace learning is better.

weak trees with poor root systems need very special care. Greenhouse tree, if possible, make sure the soil is not saturated, not soak these trees when watering. Keep slightly moist. Mist foliage. And explain to your child that you are managing irrigation. He’ll think you’re pretty cool.
