    How to propagate Coast Redwoods?

    Hi guys, I recently got 10 little coast redwood seedlings and I wanted to know what the best way to propagate them is, cuttings? air layers? ground layers? These are really rare and expensive (the transport is really) plants over here and I want to multiply them to give them to my friends. If...

    Will this Elm Air Layer up high?

    I have been eyeing a specific branch on one of my large Elm trees for a couple of years and luckily it is above my studio so I can reach it with a ladder.

    First satsuki, advice wanted

    I bought this 7 y.o. satsuki a week ago, its in pure kanuma right now I believe. I would like it to grow larger, is it advisable to put the rootball into a bigger pot and fill in the difference with vermiculite/bark/perlite mix right now? If you look at the close-up, you can see many dead aerial...

    Tigerbark ficus ( progress thread )

    Well grabbed the courage to propagate my ginseng ficus. I see such a nice future bonsai in this. I put it in a 40 percent organic and 60 percent bonsai mix. Rocks on top are just to hold it in place better. I did about a 50 to 60 percent defoliation. Everything I read says if it has no roots it...
