Bonsai, as well as orchids, are very easy to grow, but it is very difficult to keep them if we plant them properly and do not have time to care. Bonsai is more difficult than orchids because of the way to grow in the soil, the soil is very dry. Fertilizer too much tree grows in the form of bonsai, less feces, not enough nutrients will die. Water and light also, what is just enough not excess not missing.
One of the most important factors behind the chosen tree is the pot. Pots should be suitable for plants, round pots, square pots, rectangular pots, polygons, ovals. The color of the pot should be in tune with the tree to create a more balanced balance with the tree.
In addition to the pots, Bonsai must also be accompanied by moss, it makes the necklace and the Japanese often prefer to stone beautiful with the bonsai or to the side to increase the rhythm (accent) of the tree.
Your bonsai should be placed in a well-lit place. If there is not enough UV (ultraviolet light), the plant will die. During the day, the tree should be kept warm at a minimum temperature of 60 degrees F. At such a temperature the tree can regenerate its energy and develop normally. You should spray the leaves regularly. Never, ever, put your bonsai on a disc or a pot full of water, as this can cause root rot. And in the evening, of course, you can cool the bonsai tree, as well as place it in the natural environment.
You should replace the pots for the plant every two years, and preferably instead of the spring. When you go to pots, you need to prune roots. Depending on the size of the roots, trim from 1/3 to 2/3 from the root tip. You may want to replace the old pot with a similar pot to maintain the old effect. And remember to drain the drainage system for the tree. If it is too wet roots will rot. Bonsai pots are more shallow than other common indoor pots. So, if you want to fertilize the plants, you need to dilute the fertilizer to match, otherwise the liquid will burn the roots. Bonsai need to be fertilized about once every 3 weeks – but do not apply it in winter.
Your bonsai needs to be trimmed and bent regularly to maintain the desired shape. You should do this in the spring – before the vegetation season begins to develop, and then do it often throughout the spring. You need to know what kind of tree you have before cutting it – for example, if you have a banyan, you should prune all the leaves.
Since your bonsai is placed in a shallow pot, it can be very susceptible to pests and diseases. Frequent watering to maintain moisture also facilitates insect pests such as aphids, caterpillars, ants and red spiders. You always have to pay attention to the unusual signs of trees to detect pests and diseases in time. When there are abnormal signs, pesticides should be used. The most common diseases in bonsai are fungal diseases. If you see a layer of white powder covering the shoots and leaves, it means that your plants have been infected with Mindi. You need to consult the experts to treat the plant because the fungus has a very fast growth.
When you look at the bonsai you pay much attention to the leaves of the tree. If you see an orange or brown rust on the leaves, that is probably too much potassium. If your bonsai does not have enough iron, the leaves will turn yellow while the veins remain blue. This disease usually occurs in soils containing chalk or limestone – the soil that keeps the iron. In this case, replace the pots and replace the compost.
You should wash the bonsai regularly with a small brush. Do not leave any part of the plant on the ground after you have pruned – it will decompose and give rise to fungal and moss diseases. Some people think that moss is a plant ornament and does not want to be mossed. In this case it is advisable to keep the moss from growing on the trunk and branches – using a special fly, or a nylon toothbrush to remove the moss on those areas. Use tweezers to remove the grass – remember that any grass can absorb nutrients from the plant.
The planting and care of bonsai is an art. If you want to find out more thoroughly and thoroughly, look for books, materials and consult with experienced players. Hope the above tips help you to imagine what work to do after buying a home grown bonsai and enjoy.
