    DE Inbound Sale Ends Tomorrow!

    Got home from work later than usual tonight. My wife had the box inside. I will sift through it sometime this week, and add it to one of my mixes in which it fits. Remind me, Clyde, what size particle should we most expect from this coarse DE?

    I did just purchase this tokoname from Japan. I’m slowly acquiring some nicer pots ?.

    Thanks. The BC is more of a challenge for me, probably my next tree to work on. I find it grows out of control and gets away from me in the summer. Good problem to have but I need to take advantage of all that growth better.

    Thanks ? I’m looking forward to seeing some leaves too. There’s a couple buds swelled up ready to burst. If larger it’d be next spring. But you’re probably right, the tree can grow into this pot more. I have a tendency to overpot. 1) I have a limited amount of pots. 2) nearly all of them are...

    Happy Spring! I've been itching to repot some trees. I spent a lot of my free time recently sifting a lot of soil. Now that it's as organized as it's ever been it's time to get to work. Here's the update for this tree, I decided to keep the same pot as I couldn't find exactly what I was...

    SCREWED UP! New Coarse DE Poll / Thread Please Comment!

    Just saw this Clyde, I sifted through my bag of optisorb already. But, would still like to pre order a box of this stuff. Off to your website now, thanks. Edit: great! Just pre ordered a box. It sounds like it will be pretty uniform, but I assume you still recommend sifting for fines?

    It has burst open pretty well, besides the back which is waking up a little later than the front.

    Acer oliverianum and Acer rubrum var. drummondii

    Hey there, sorry for the delayed response - missed this one. Unfortunately my seedlings dried out that spring and I haven't gotten around to trying another round. If I can find some seedlings online I might give them a shot again.

    Will do mile! Took a pic after watering yesterday. I rubbed off some buds that were in undesirable areas. This is probably my favorite time of the year; watching trees burst open with a brand new flush of leaves.

    My first collected tree, Bougainvillea

    Thanks! Rot has definitely been a problem. I need to reapply lime sulfer and wood hardener (now that it'll be raining much more in a month or two). Summer's are very hot and humid. I honestly prefer the winter, but I really look forward to the lightning and thunder storms. They light up...

    Bonsai bench construction question

    Thanks Yes everything will get wet down there but it's no problem for me I guess, since I just planned to have unused pots down there. Maybe after a couple months I'll give the pots a rinse with the hose, and bring out the blower to clean up under the bench. My biggest problem right now is a...

    Here it is with most of my trees. I have some other stuff in the ground too. The majority of my trees are young and still need a lot more time!

    My first collected tree, Bougainvillea

    Wow, it's been about 3 years since my last update. So much has changed with this boug, and in my life in general since that 2014 update. Almost 3 years now since Chowder (pup in the original post) passed. She was a great dog and is missed! The tree has been reduced significantly in an...

    Thanks for all the kind words, I definitely owe a lot of credit to this site, the people here, and the people that haven't been back for a while. @milehigh_7 Not sure if you remember sending 3 JBP seedlings to FL around 4 years ago, but they've been in the ground for 2 years now, thanks! I...

    Bonsai bench construction question

    I'm using a full cedar frame, still undecided about what material for the tops. maybe composite. Mortise frame and tenon legs. cross supports will be held in with decking screws. will try to take some pics;)

    Bonsai bench construction question

    I'm plan on using deck screws on almost everything. But, the connection of concern is the frame to the vertical legs. Since the frame 2x4's will be sitting on top of the legs a 3.5" deck screw will only just make it through the frame in "4" part of the 2x4 (and not into the leg to secure them...
