    Cool gift idea

    Unfortunately, I did. Hence my exasperation. Imagine.. Also in all facebook groups this has been posted at least twice and I am in some 15 groups.. It is in the same category as the marihuana bonsai.

    Need help! Moss growing on branches and trunk.

    This tree bark cleaning product do me sounds VERY much like normal anti-algea products which you use on pathways. It is what I use to clean the bark. Twice a year I paint trunks of rough barked species and it does wonders in keeping the trunk clean. Ready the package. If it is safe to use on...

    Stratifying & Germinating Maple Seeds indoors.

    I have no clue. I avoid old seeds. I do not need to water the substrate, as my place is sucky wet.

    Would nurseries or clubs pay for professional photos of their trees?

    I think the fact that most pictures are not great reflect a desinterest. On my side, I have everything needed to take great pictures. I just do not spend the time putting things up, especially when I just take pictures for my archive.

    Acer Palmatum

    Very Nice Tree. Shows what consistent work can do! Do you have a side-by-side of your.. elm? Very similar canopy in my minds eye!?

    Don't you hate strays?

    In the end someone dropping by at my place was in need of plants, and this one jumped in his car. In spring I was told it did indeed sprout. Never did get updated pictures.

    How far to reduce - road side collection

    Been a while since I was in this thread.. spring 2020 saw a few basic wires: Full on wiring later in 2020 And this summer it was telling me: You gotta do something. I am just not sure this is going somewhere. Guess it will move on if someone makes me an offer.

    2022 from seeds !

    Yup. Just make sure they do not drown if you have a particularly wet winter and you should be set for spring.

    Yamadoori and nursery pines

    Agreed that it is not needed. I also do not add them. But scientific studies on transplants & especially, transfer into pots, indicate a better recovery of roots when inoculated explicitly.

    Leatherbacks Pseudocydonia sinensis - 2

    This week I got 2 pseudocydonia's. Full story here. Side by side. This thread is about the left one. Like the one on the right, I repotted it in better substrate ready for winter and a healthy (!?) start in 2022. Burried below the muck was a nice swelling, invisible by all the liverworth...

    Leatherbacks Pseudocydonia sinensis - 1

    The one on the right was treated as the one on the left. As it looked pretty healthy (WAY less dead branches, and lots of white roots in the moss) I decdided to look at the rootball. This plant was potted in soaking wet substrate, which for me is an indication of the real problems these plants...

    Leatherbacks Pseudocydonia sinensis - 1

    A few weeks ago I was at a befriended bonsai growers' field. I saw 2 pseudocydonia's in a corner that suffered lots of dead branches. So even though I have wanted one for a bit, I was not willing to get these at full price. However, as I was leaving, he told me those 2 were probably no good...
