Hello everyone !

I tried to find here and there some informations about Bonsai in Thailand and instead of old post (2008-2011) I am having hard time to find my answers and more especially as a beginner.

I have few questions if any would answers them I will be greatfull.

- first is about seasons in Thailand for Bonsai, I know that we are in the North Hemisphere but instead of that there's 3 main seasons Cold, Hot and Rainy, even tho the temperature do not change that much the humidity might drop a bit depending on the season.
My question is when would be the best time for repotting and prunning ? It is tricky to answer I know because there is a difference between ficus and Maple for example but overall if I can have a guide line. Should I follow the same guide line as Bonsai repotting and pruning in the Northern emisphere ? Even tho the season are a bit specials.

- secondly does anyone knows a group of foreigners Bonsai club in Thailand and more especially in Bangkok ? I tried to talk with some locals but it is quite hard some thai as I do not speak thai.

- last question is about addresses.
Does anyone has good addresses about Nurseries or/and Bonsai Supplies in Bangkok ?
I went to Chatuckack for sure I have found many small Bonsai shops but I am trying to find a "pre bonsai" nursery. I come from France and there in Europe Garden Centers are huge and there are many choices and some of them offer a pretty good quality of trees. I found one near onnut here but the choice is not phenomenal and hard to find good nearness for example.

To be honest my main question is about foreigners club or association in Thailand where I will be able to have good answers to all of my questions.

Thank you for those who take the time to read and answer 🙏

Ps: some few pics about the species I have: Premna Taiwan, Ficus Ben., deshojo Maple, crassula ovata and Tiger Bark Ficus.

You should include Vietnam in your searches for info because it was a French colony with more locals also speaking French and the weather is probably close to Thailand.

Growing seasons around the world vary widely and it is difficult to get a perspective on what someone says when we don't know where in the world they are. If you go to the upper right hand corner and click on your Icon, you can add your location and people will be able to customize advice for you. Stating your location in one post is only useful if everyone reads everything from the beginning.

I'd get in contact with Boon Manakitivipart. He has a study group in Thailand and gets down there as often as he can. From what I understand, there's a lot of knowledge there.
