Last summer, he wrote about an approach to “Keep bonsai dry in summer,” filling trays with gravel and planting of trees at the top. Knowing how much they appreciate the extra water glycine, I put a dwarf wisteria on a tray and was happy to find that the tree grew well throughout the season. When I finally got to the removal of tree leaves and remove from the tray, I was surprised to find some additional roots.

These roots bonus show that not only make wisteria like water, but this wisteria, in particular, could use a big pot to accelerate the development process.

will remove the additional roots before transplanting and select a more appropriate pot for next year. If I was happy with the trunk of the way it is, I would keep the tree in a small pot, but as I would like the tree to grow bigger, I’ll give more room to move.
