Guide to pruning art bonsai

Bonsai and ornamental plants can cut the maximum branches into stable seasons and this is the season for growth and development of the plant, but how to prune it so that after a few years or more it will become a tree. beautiful scenery, can be classified into the ornamental bonsai.

This is not easy, because if anyone can do the bonsai art is not as high as today. To do this, players must persevere, constantly learn, learn, must understand botany, do more, bravely do will succeed.

Want a bonsai tree, first of all must have embryo. Common embryos are plants that are able to grow, grow well, live long lives, live fiercely. The embryos are obtained from seedling sources or extracts, or harvested in the wild. Both types have the advantages of it. However, the shape of the embryo, the pruning is still the most important technique. Change the inherent nature of the tree without losing the rational, the nature of the tree, so after many efforts, wisdom, trees are attractive and beautiful, beautiful and attractive. Artistic landscaping must also be ancient, want to have an ancient look, have to wait at the time combined with the aging of the tree.

When growing embryos should be planted in ang, large pots, not many substances (humus soil) so that trees have conditions to grow and develop fast. Many people do the opposite that planting the pot into small pots and then when large trees, gradually into ang, large pots so the tree grows slowly. Depending on the tree planted different positions so that when the tree is easy to shape. When pruning, pay attention to pruning to both roots and branches, branches.

Cut the roots

When the tree is energetic, the leaves are sprucey, the roots grow spontaneously, many branches. Which one to cut, which one must be selected for the branches, the sides of the body. To grow many roots from the branches, the body will shrink to make the branches grow faster, causing the correlation between branches and stems unbalanced. So just leave a few roots in the stem and then cling to the body to grow up, can also root to root to the large base. In the large branches only to glimpse some secondary roots emanating from the branches to make the tree lively.

Cut branches

With branches, we apply cutting method to after several cutting, branches become bent, flexible but not straight. To cut branches, to observe the whole branch of the tree to cut the branches are still distributed, reasonable, the tree is not empty. It is also possible to use wire to bend and fix branches, but it must be removed in time when the branches are large, otherwise metal wire will cause branches to stain after several months due to large trees, metal wire to the shell. loss of beautiful branches, branches. There are trees so that the distance between the tops and the branches is too far, to lose the balance of the tree, we cut off the tops, waiting for the seeds to emit in the rest, the sprouts are suitable for use as tops, Look at the whole tree of balance, harmony, not just bonsai but also the flowers of art.

At present, the trend of making trees in the style of “multi-village” is prevalent, the cutting easier to follow the ancient style has strict rules. However, the pruning, roots, branches must be done regularly and long, can not be rushed.

Here we have shared with you about how to prune ornamental art, hope to help you care for the plants as you like.

Guide to make cuts quickly scarring

In bonsai creation, we can not not cut the stem to dwarf and shrink the tree so that it can be planted in the tub, also can not be cut not by the right branch or not suitable for the idea.

But in order for these cuts to be quickly scarred, there are no longer pieces of shortage of aesthetics, we should cut deeply into the stem or iron to the stem, forming a V shape, and then use a razor blade Remove the outer layer of the bark of the cuticle, exposing the growing layer of cells that are supposed to develop the cuticle necessary for rapid wound healing. If there is a piece of wood protruding after the cut saw will cause damage to the tree later.

Once the outer layer of the skin around the cut has been removed, the wound must be painted with a special glue that is easily purchased from the pet biology service.

However, after a period of several months, it is possible to use a sharp knife to pierce the old wound and it may still continue to rot, although the wound is covered with a non-stick coating. Therefore, it is necessary to remove all of the rinsing layer and to create a drainage ditch for the wound so that the water does not remain in the rump causing the next rinse condition. When this work is done, we must paint the wound with a sticky, non-moldy glue like the first time, and this job must be done three to three times until the cells grow out. Traumatic mouth makes a charmingly attractive scar.

In order to quickly grow the scar, we can put the plant into a special care regimen, providing the necessary nutrients and keeping the plant in the most comfortable state. Absolutely do not let the plant under hot sun hot, this is easy for plants to escape the water leads to dehydration, shocking the tree. Do not leave trees in places where there are strong shocks.

The above are the instructions to help you quickly recover the wound in the process of shaping decorative bonsai.

How to care for Bonsai

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.

Tanuki technique: grafting young plants with dead trees or driftwood

Tanuki is a Japanese word that describes a technique in bonsai art. Technique taniki is using dead trees, or driftwood has curves, bending and size available and relatively young plants are growing to shape.

The taniki technique helps us to restore the value of dead trees, and to use any living species we like to create an old-fashioned bonsai.

If we like spare parts, cypress, casuarinas, yellow chrysanthemums, white apricot blossom, shade, me, tea painting, , we can all apply. And so, tanuki gives us more freedom while selecting objects (dead and living plants) to shorten the time for a young tree to become an ancient art bouquet and may have many tastes. more inspirational, more creative in shaping techniques.

Materials needed to implement this technique

Dead stems or driftwood are tough, resistant to moisture. The root diameter and the branches are large and small, as you like and depending on our ability to search.
Coil, drill, some sponges or rubber.
Seedlings are growing rapidly.


We have a driftwood or driftwood that drills, drills grooved in length and trains from root to tip (from one to many grooves). The grooves are perforated, somehow they have two grooves on the sides of the groove and the diameter of the groove is slightly larger than the diameter of the seedlings we wish to apply.

This is quite important in tanuki

The plants we choose are fast growing, very suitable for this technique. We place, insert seedlings into the grooves (Figure), from the bottom of the driftwood to the top or appropriate branches.

Pay attention: Do not bark or bark off the carpentry

Then use a sponge, peel off the stem, and use zinc wire tightened from the root to the top (Figure). The purpose is to use sponge to not eat the bark on the bark right, and therefore do not create stain on the stem later. Then, plant a pot with relative depth, so that the seedlings develop.

Soil should be planted so that roots can absorb a lot of oxygen, develop the factor. It is recommended to use nitrogenous fertilizers (N) to help the plant grow faster.

When the seedlings are large, it must first develop and fill the grooves, and then the grooves, before spilling out the grooves. Once the tree has grown and begins to spill out of the groove, we can cut the wire and take out the sponge.

Let the tree grow freely for a few years, that is, do not prune, during which time, we have time to shape the tree more into the details. Then use the copper wire, zinc rolls and break the shape that we want.

Continue to keep the branches to grow as desired

The remaining parts of the driftwood, depending on the level of technical and aesthetic we are able to apply, we can apply different techniques such as Jin, shari, Saba-Miki (peeled, to plant trees naturally, and improve the technique of the tree.

After shaping, and applying the necessary techniques to the tree and when the tree is almost complete, we can find a beautiful bats appropriate to the design, size of the bonsai to replace.

Because of these reasons, we all recognize that bonsai is an art and is different from conventional potted plants.

With the technique of taniki, we will shorten the time of shaping and we have the roots, stalks, branches of driftwood the best and finally the kind that we like most.
