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.
You seem to be very interested in olives.
How often do you repot them? Go by root density or what?
I think I've been doing it too often by doing it yearly.
Still trying to figure out what is making the ends of the leaves turn brown.
Overall seems healthy, but should I stop repotting yearly?
Do you repot your olive bonsai around now or do you do it in spring ? Mine is growing, perhaps slowing down now when it's super hot. It's in development and I'm letting it run to thicken the trunk . I can see root coming out of the nursery pot so I reckon I need to repot it to a colander . I won't really trim the root, maybe just arrange them. But when???
I saw about the Columbus Bonsai Society's class being done next month. I know you're in that bonsai club and was wondering if you knew anything about it or could tell me about it. I thought about taking the class since I'm newer to all this but like to know if it's mostly just basic concepts that I'd already have taught myself or if it'd be worth it. Thanks,
