Has anyone heard of using a refrigerated greenhouse to allow alpine species, like white pine, spruce, etc., to go through dormancy in places like Southern Florida? It's such a shame never to be able to enjoy a ponderosa pine or lodgepole down here. Cost aside, maybe two or three months in a refrigerated room or container, possibly with grow lights to allow a bit of photosynthesis would do the trick. Thoughts?
Hi quiet observer. I was wondering what type of 3336 granular fungicide do you use. There is the 3336EG and the 3336DG and there seems to be a difference between the two. I was just wanting to get the correct one. Thank you for your help.
Hi Leo, Thank you for you input on the fungicide. Do you use the granular form or the liquid form? Your application protocol sound like you use the liquid form. I thought the liquid form was only a foliar spray. I was wanting to order some but do not know which type to get for bonsai culture. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Hi Greg, last night I put up 3 pics of a pyracantha on a 4 page thread (is that the correct term?) about them and don't see them today. Or any 4 pages about pyracantha's. Could this be something about the adjustments you've been making?
Hey I seen that you are the go to guy when it comes to Mugo pines. Im pretty new to the bonsai world. Ive read a few books and watched TONS of youtube videos. i recently bought a Mugo the other day and i have read on here about putting them into a colander. So today i went to lowes and bought a pond basket and some bonsai soil from the local nursey. should i wait to put the tree into the colander or now? and how?
I'm leaving the Philippines, returning to the States, alone, around 10/10/18. Not sure of plans beyond that, or if I will continue with bonsai or BNut. I've made many fine friends here, and I will miss you ... but may come visit some of you in person finally, since one possible plan is to buy an RV and just travel around visiting people and places I've always liked. Well see. A Dios. G52.
I brought home to the USA from China several small Franixus hubeinsis pre bonsai stumps about 25 years ago. From them I have grown some large bonsai from cuttings; they root easiy. I have no seed. Are you still looking?
