Because dead wood is fashionable in the world of bonsai, here’s a bit of it. Unbelievable that we could find so it was nice and straight, right?
mopped banks with a bristle brush eliminates the buildup of algae and mold, helping to resist decomposition of wood. It is likely that the bottom of most wooden benches to be pretty cool looking you are. There is rarely a need to turn the bank and scrub the other side.
And not only algae. When we delete, wood, broken loose particles are removed time that would otherwise end up with a heavy rain attached to the sides of our pots, and spackling. So this aerobic activity also has an aesthetic benefit. Blasting some Freddie Mercury or Maria Callas could help loosen dirt, too. (We did, just a suggestion.)
Try to do this for a wet week in late autumn or early spring, when the trees are in winter quarters and already outside banks. A rain loosen the organic accumulation and make it easier to brush off. Above all this is mechanical, although some may prefer the addition of Chlorox. Be sure to wash with a strong jet of the hose before the washed areas have dried … otherwise, rescrubbing begins. What could be more than another chance to play Calas, for some.
