    Foemina Juniper Bark Management

    I was just wondering if anyone had any general tips on Foemina bark management. I have a tree with Jin several shari. I was going to clean off the bark they way I usually do for itoigawa. However I noticed that the new red bark layer is a bit more delicate on my Foemina. Does anyone clean bark...

    Camellia's cracking bark

    Hello Bonsai people, I come to you with a question concerning the bark of a camellia. I noticed that it's cracking in some points: I have very little experience about this species (I acquired this one couple of years ago), I was only able to see young garden plants or old specimens in bonsai...

    Curious pattern on palmatum's bark

    Hello bonsai people, I wondered what this curious pattern on my maple's bark could be. There are patches, here and there, and they're most visible when the trunk is wet. Any ideas? Thanks!

    insect ID + advice with flaky bark bonsais

    Hello Bonsai people, this morning I spotted 3 or 4 of these tiny insects on the trunk of one my JRP, and as I have no idea of what they could be, let's see if anyone might have some suggestions. These are dark red, not really moving (but when removed from the tree I could see some wee legs...

    Will this branch survive?

    Greetings! I am very new at bonsai and definitely need some specific advice. I was wiring a branch and the tip of the wire twisted under the bark and completely removed it as I wound the wire around the branch. I realize my mistake there (should have left some slack on the wire where I started)...

    You feed your Jaboticaba in the Spring and the bark explodes.

    Well, it's a mix of Biogold, Hanagokoro and fish emulsion. Basacote, just a sprinkle. A lightly diluted kelp emulsion sprayed every month... And the Jaboticaba has to change clothes, as the old ones don't fit in its new fattened trunk. First image from three months ago, trunk images from today...

    Identify my tree?!?

    Hi all! I have no idea what this monster tree is but it’s deciduous here in the UK. There’s not much to identify it by, just the bark but I’m sure someone out there knows! Thanks for the future replies! Ben

    The bark picture thread

    Simple: post an interesting closeup picture of the bark of a tree you own (refined bonsai or long term project, doesn’t matter). Focus on picture quality, proper focus and lighting. If you post in this thread, you must attach a bark picture, no exception. Same rule as in the other picture...

    Revitalizing Bark

    Has anyone ever heard of ideas to revitalize bark on a tree? Are there nutrients specifically used to feed bark? In doing just a bit of research I have come up empty. Seems like there should be more information about it instead of just how to clean it.
