... to produce bonsai-pots.
This was my first attempt to create a training-pot
using cement-mortar like it is utilized in Vietnam.
Maybe I will continue this method, if the result is reasonably fine.
Tomorrow the pot will be seperated from the construction-platform.
If it's okay, I will report.
@Tieball you might think I am a complete fool, buta
I think concrete is even better than wooden or plastic-containers for trainingpots. Why?
Because of the micro-climate a "mineralic-container" provides for the roots ...
(Well this is stricly imho of course ...)
It will be interesting to see what tree you put in your first concrete pot. Curious....will you “weather” it first for a season or two before use? (Leaving it outside on the ground to develop “ground patina“ and cure with the climate.)
The aluminum based mortars should be safe more quickly than Portland cement based mortars.
I threw mine in the pond for a couple weeks.
once algae started to grow all over them I assumed they were safe. The trees didn’t seem to mind.
Well gentlemen, @Anthony@AlainK @Crawforde
these are very valuable advices for me!
Many thanks for those, since I am new to that stuff.
Basically I am using Portland-Cement.
I was going to use the training-pots (if at all) between late summer and beginning of autumn.
Until then I will store the pots in my little pond.
Thank you for your respons again. I really appreciate that! ...
