THE TECHNIQUE OF CREATING MINIATURE BONSAI TREES USING 15 YEARS OLD JUNIPERS

Photos and text from "Bonsai Pasion" magazine (number 44/2009), pages 11-19.

 "The final product"

 15 years old Itoigawa Juniper.

 Using a very sharp saw we cut the trunk thickness of at least 3 cm. 


 Cut into pices.

 We prepare pots with soil (Akadama).

 We hit the stump in the ground. We use fine Akadama.

 We pressed against the trunk to the ground using a wire.

 Add more Akadama.

 We attach the plant using a wire.

 We dipping the pot in a water.

 When the ground is already wet, remove the pot.

 The soaked pots.

 We put the pot into a mini greenhouse.
The temperature remains stable inside.

At the bottom we slept layer of gravel. 
Then pour from 1 to 2 cm of water. 
Gravel makes that the water does not touch the pots and the humidity is ideal.

 The cover is made of a wooden frame and a plastic foil.

 We wait patiently until the roots grow.
