    Larch, so much to like and not like

    I agree that the first one doesn’t look too bad really.

    Larch, so much to like and not like

    I bought a twig of larch last year at a convention. If it doesn’t die in San Diego from lack of deep dormancy I will be happy. I would love even a crummy straight trunk larch like that down here. Keep looking and I’m sure you will find something!

    Anyone with disabilities?

    I don’t claim to be disabled but I’ve had low back problems for nearly 4 years now. At some point sitting for over 5 minutes was unbearable for about 6 months but I found a way to take care of my trees despite the discomfort and never ending sciatica/limb pain which persists.

    Not Enough Light, What You Guys Think About This Setup?

    Flouros are weak and on top of that the blinds are shut. You would need a high powered light like a high pressure sodium bulb or something around those lines for a decent experiment. Keep them outside to simplify life.

    .Does anyone know what’s living in my new/first bonsai? Should I be concerned? Anything I can do?

    Knowing the species of tree could help narrow it down but to be honest I’ve never seen anything like that. It’s probably the devil

    The bonsai heresy thread

    Nigel’s videos are a cringe fest for me. He would rather stack rocks around the nebari and haul that to his greenhouse. Very limiting in situations where the center of mass of the tree is not directly over the nebari. I can’t ever imagine a situation where his approach would be better than...

    New bonsai grow area: share your insights

    Think about where you want your hose to be to minimize any annoyance from going around corners. Consider the side of the yard with the longest photoperiod and maximize its functionality if that is important for some of the species that you grow.

    Thoughts on pollen cones?

    Makes about as much sense as thinking that a runny nose is a sign that you’re going to die just because that is a symptom of a fatal illness at times. If cone production was so detrimental to health don’t you think pines as one of the most ancient species would have evolved a better strategy for...

    Teach me about "Hardening Off"

    Before the branch is hardened off it is incapable of photosynthesizing at maximum efficiency. The plant is expending resources and hasn’t recovered that lost energy yet. Like others have mentioned, it looses water more easily as well. Pruning these unlignified branches also results in the stem...

    How do you explain bonsai to someone who knows nothing about it?
