For plants, this is serious, non-boring business. Without cooling, the plant will not be able to grow in the spring. Without resistance, the plant can be damaged by cold weather. Let’s break this down a little.

There are two things at work here. Fortaleza. And cold.

  • Climate: The ability of the plant to survive cold. light frosts improve the ability of a plant to withstand deeper cold. Once the plants begin to grow in spring gradually they lose their resistance to cold.
  • Chilling Time, in hours, is necessary in the range of 33-50 F before the plant will grow in the spring. Freezing has no effect on cooling, and time spent below zero is not ‘connected’ in the countdown of the plant. Temperatures above 60 are harmful for cooling. Unmet needs are cold which prevent grow too early in the spring plant, and if the requirements of cold and the plant is still growing is not met because the weather is too cold. Once temperatures are in the 40 trees usually begin to grow.

Therefore. What this for growing temperate species as bonsai means?

  • Some plants have a lot of needs cold or need a higher temperature in the spring before growth starts, and started so late in the spring may be wondering if they had died, such as beech. Others have little cold requirement , like some blueberries south. You may notice differences between coastal and high elevation trees or trees north. Knowledge of these differences help us to anticipate and protect people who start to grow in early spring.
  • You may notice some types of growth, as flowering, which could occur while the snow is still flying in the camellia or ume (flowering apricot). These plants will still take some time to start shoot growth, however, it is more sensitive to cold.
  • Understanding cooling also helps us to trees that are in need of cooling health program as trees of temperate climate that we are trying to keep in warmer climates. In those warm areas, you may need to place bonsai tempered in the shade, keep them cooler, and go on for as long as we can in the winter to help meet your needs cold.
  • Despite understand whether the trees may or may not survive freezing is very important maps hardiness plant are almost useless to bonsai producers , which are considered root resistance. The roots are much more sensitive to cold.
  • Be very careful in the spring, when the bonsai are growing and are starting to lose their resistance. Even very resistant types of plants such as spruce, once growing, can be damaged by cold. And cold damage is irreversible, one of those things in one night of prevention is worth more years of training bonsai. Is not there a saying that?
