    European Hornbeam Stalled

    My first time with a hornbeam but I found them interesting because of their legendary vigor. I picked up this nice pre-bonsai from a guy back in the early spring (this year) and it did precisely one thing: leafed out (as you can see), but nothing else. Meanwhile my other trees have been like...

    Help! Worried my hornbeam has a fungal infection.

    I’ve started to notice these black spots, burnt edges, and holes developing in some of my hornbeam leaves. At first I thought it was sunburn but after hearing many people discuss how their hornbeams can tolerate full sun I am starting to think it’s a fungal infection. The tree does seem semi...

    Can it be salvaged?

    Hello, I Have a Korean hornbeam, I suspect the roots have dried out, was neglected over the winter, not watered regularly. I repotted the tree and am seeing some spring growth, some leaves have budded sporadically through-out the tree. Does that mean the tree is still alive or able to be...

    Should I remove the dead leaves from my hornbeam?

    I inherited this hornbeam last year. I'd like to keep it going as long as possible, but I've absolutely no bonsai experience. The leaves turned orange over autumn and I half expected them to fall, but they didn't. Now its early spring and the leaves are still here! I can also see some small buds...

    Artificial Intelligence meets Bonsai

    (This video was automatically generated by an AI from a single 2D image.) Hi all, I wanted to share a small experiment we've done. We applied an AI algorithm to automatically render 2D Bonsai images as 3D videos with pre-set camera movements in order to give a better sense of a tree's volume...

    Carpinus betulus, Hornbeam nebari

    Developped from 1 year old plant. Planted in the ground and groundlayer one year later. This is the second repot after that. It's basically a stick in a pot with a rootbase. I planned to groundgrow this one but I was afraid to lose the rootbase so I put it back in the box. If I want a tapering...

    Beech (Sylvatica) & Hornbeam (Betulus) Thread Grafting

    Background A month or so ago I began exploring the potential for thread grafting these two 'similar' spp. Scroll down to see the graft and spare the interpretation/justification of this futility! :p:D:p I soon found out that these visually similar spp. are in fact completely different. Genus...

    Went on a collection trip with fellow members of the Nashville Bonsai Society. It was my 1st time. Had a blast! This was my first collected tree. Amercain hornbeam, I think. Dig it out. Wash the dirt off. Cut some roots. Potted up in bonsai substrate. Water and shade. (Outside) Advice...

    Advice with Carolina Hornbeam during winter - is it dying or dead?

    Hi everyone, I have a Carolina Hornbeam (I think it might be a variation of the American Hornbeam) and during the hot DC Summer I underwatered accidentally for a couple of days and all the leaves dried up and fell. I cut them all off (around August) and then the tree began to slowly recover...
