    Hello c54fun. I live in Dallas and just started getting interested in bonsai. Your posts are great to give me an idea how my trees might do in this weather.

      Some trees do well in Dallas and others don't. Bonsai is a lot of fun and addicting.

    If I keep it alive a decade or two that Oak will be a Bonsai.

    That would be 'forest' to 'forrest' to 'Forrest Gump' to 'jenny', the Robin Wright character who was the love of his life.

    Hi Im brandon.in need of some help. satsuki azalea needs a lot of tlc!and hoping you can help. cant seem to find any good articles to help decide on a mix and mind you ive only got one year of experience. Is there anything you can recommend or some sort of soil recipe or your preference. I want to avoid killing my little guy and not buy all required elements for a good mix if i dont need it.

    Well... looks like Ms. Oliive is happy again. At least for the summer.
    My resident club "olive person" sez that ...HERE.... olives want...DIRT!
    So.... I'll be repotting next season in more akadama and SOIL. WAY less lava.
    Probly replace the lava with pumice.

    But....DIRT?

    How can a bonsaist utter, "DIRT?"
    heh

      seems a bit crazy to me too, why don't you just try unsifted akadama. I use that mix for things that need more moisture. Glad that your olive has picked back up!

    Its really weird, Lenz confirms he had these pests before, they come in via others plants. He jsut zapped then with Raid--but that is what he did with most things.

    I am doing through spray weekly with Abamectin(generic Avid) mixed with Malathion one week and Orthene the next etc. with an adjuvant for 3 or 4 weeks. The first spraying seems to have killed everything--I am supposed to follow with TeraSan for the crawler stage stuff but don't have it. Too cheap for Forbid but now I have found a small amount source for Forbid. Most say that's the stuff to use.

      Hello!
      I wait until it blooms -if ever- so that we can be more certain about species.
      Jacaranda flowers have a splendid colou!r
