    Real hedging and development the Smoke way!!!

    It seems like I remember you being all about humic acid content. Am I missing this on the label or has your fertilizing theory evolved?

    Someone once told me it’s non binary. It’s more like a spectrum. ?

    Are you a Parrot?

    On second thought, maybe we don’t even need a new thread. Maybe Smoke can just edit this threads title.

    Attention hemlock lovers

    I'd be interested in peoples ideas regarding the current pot and angles of both of these. I think the mountain hemlock needs to be slightly more upright with time and repotting. It could look nice on a slab. Thoughts?

    The "What The Heck Should I Do With It" Thread

    The only old growth ones only live in China and I can’t afford the plane ticket. There’s a few images on google. The branches seem to go up but most of the trees look young...I’m just confused as to how they would best be approached in a bonsai pot. How would you style yours?

    The "What The Heck Should I Do With It" Thread

    How do you style a Dawn Redwood? How do you create ramification? Should the branches go up like a deciduous tree or droop down like an aging conifer? I’m not sure I’m digging this species for bonsai material. I got this one for free:

    Initial styling Blue Spruce

    I've wired Engelmann branches with no dieback. I think we even moved them around more than once. They only like to be wired in autumn, maybe winter and should be misted and kept moist while you work on them.

    Initial styling Blue Spruce

    At least you learned a lot from your now deceased material. This happens when you practice bonsai. Whether people admit it or not, everyone that is any good at this has killed at least a few trees. There are lots of very good teachers where you live. Find someone experienced who has...

    Spekboom a.k.a. Portulacaria Afra

    This one has a new set of leaves. Mine self defoliate over the winter in my house yearly. They don't like being inside nov-April in my dry house on a windowsill. They look bad and have few leaves by April and then look happy after 6 months outside. It's a yearly occurrence. It's like trees...

    Chojubai quince

    Soil mix is 1/3 or slightly more pumice, 1/3 lava, 1/3 or less akadama. There could be a little residual turface there, but not much. There was a little sphagnum placed on top at last repot 2 years ago. It was a wet winter. It's in sort of dappled shade with late afternoon sun. Organic...

    Lets spruce things up

    These things are tough as sh_t around here. I've had one since 2000...moved it across the country...and it won't die here (11 yrs). They need lots of wire...but finally take shape.
