    Need guidance with Fukien tea

    Hi all, last year I got into this hobby and took care of two trees, one is still alive and the other one I killed it after around 10 months more or less. That was in the balearic islands, but couple of months ago I had to move to Barcelona so I kind of stopped my tree adventure. Last week my...

    When should I start to fertilize my 2 week old seedling?

    It is a Delonix Regia that I am keeping indoors until the weather permits otherwise. This is the first tree seed that I’ve planted. Also, what kind of fertilizer should I use and should I put it in another “pot”. This one came with the kit and I’m not sure how sufficient it is. I have...

    Bonsai near balcony door... did i just kill my bonsai?

    Hello, I live in a small house and now have 5 indoor bonsai that I am really enjoying, one of which is a bilobed Grewia (Grewia Biloba) I got for Christmas. So I set up a stand by the southern window, beside the door to my porch where the rest bonsai tools and pots are. In the past week I...

    lighting... LED?

    Hello this is my first post, I recently got hooked on this hobby. I’m looking for good light recommendations. If you could flood me with links, info and personal experiences I’d love to hear it. LED seems like the route I wanna go but not sold on them just yet. I’m looking for quality and with...

    Spruce Backbudding

    Well it would appear that I've managed to get my Blue Spruce to backbud, but only on one branch. Its worth noting, I didnt do anything special and I wasnt trying to get it backbud either. Do you think these buds will mature and open up this season? I see smaller buds forming on the hardened off...

    Alpine species: Indoor or Outdoor?

    I live in Montana, USA, in the Northern Rocky Mountains. I've been attempting to grow three seedlings which I took out of the "wild" (if you can call around my neighborhood wild), all of which are native subalpine/alpine trees. I have two Rocky Mountain Maple babies, and a tiny Douglas fir. I...

    Rosemary pre-bonsai is dying

    This established nursery rosemary was obtained in the summer, kept indoors in well lit area until winter. Now we have less light coming in, furnace is drying the air out, and it's been lightly pruned a few times (for shape and to thin it out). It has gone from full and lush to browning needles...

    Humidity Tray "grid" - there's got to be a better way

    For ease of watering (and upping the local humidity) I'd like to put some of my tropicals on humidity trays. I am not a fan of the tray+gravel+pot method, even though the gravel does look pretty. I'd prefer a nice, sciencey looking grid, like these Humidi-Grow trays that Bonsai Boy has. The...

I have always had a love for growing things, especially in early high school. After a few months of not being active on that side, my passion for plants has...

    Indoor Bonsai

    Have any or you read Brooklyn Botanic Garden's book "Indoor Bonsai", published 2002? I'm curious the thoughts of the membership here and experiences of people growing indoors, especially those growing year round. I read the book about a year ago via my local library, then recently picked up...

    My Ficus Microcarpa

    High: 27 width: 38 Work in progress. I live in north Texas, weather is unstable. It's too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter for this tropical tree. I have to keep it out door but in shade in summer and indoor in winter close to a bright window. It's been working well for me...
