Walter Pall's main blog about bonsai and his work with trees from day to day. Lots of good pictures of good trees and lots of valuable information about bonsai.
What is it that you apply to the roots that appears to be grey in appearance?
What have you sprayed at the surface roots after picture 22 mr Pall? One more question, can i defoliate a japanese maple after repotting and second year in a raw?Thanks
Ordinary lime sulphur to bleach the roots which were under the soil for so long and are too dark.Se the result on teh last images.
I would not defoliate a Japanese maple after repotting in the same year. It weakens an already wek tree. I
An amazing looking tree Walter which will look stunning after you've worked on it. Two questions - why have you repotted it into a deeper pot? Also - it seems to me from the photos that the two lowest branches are forming a 'T bar' do you have any plans on changing that or will you just work with it?
Ann, so many Japanese trees are planted into ridiculously shallow ans small pots. This is artistically wring in my opinion as the optical mass of the pot has to be big enough to hold the optical mass of the crown. The t-bar 'problem' we will see. Very often I just cannot see a problem there. This is an invented problem. It usually only bothers folks who 'know' that this should be problem.
Where from Japan for you order this type of maple?
Trade secret. You can order throuhg me.
