Hello! This is Samar … welcomes you to Be The Creator Bonsai Gardening You will remember last November… … my two natural bonsai Ive transplanted from nursery pot Then I had some confusion … regarding the name of these trees Most of the friends assume it as Boxus Then one of the friends, named Amit Kumar … Removed my confusion That is Dwarf Murraya Paniculata … That means, its a dwarf variety of Kamini Thank you once again Amit. Now it has nicely settled in the pot and …. according to my plan … I’ve to prune them now Due to its dense foliage, … no sunlight can reach inside So … In the interior … … no shoots can develop.. getting die back automaticaly And it’s trunk and branches ….

Can’t get strong and healthy If I’ll prune it … then every part of the tree will get sunlight and … will grow more strong and … healthy The work I’ll do in this episode … you will understand every thing while watching On last episode …. the 12 … rules to select bonsai branches That I’ve shared …. I’m applying those rules here Please watch it carefully Occasionally, unwanted branches … are also grown To balance the tree growth … and in future we have to prune it These type of branch is … called Sacrifice branch Observation … is a vital job … to make bonsai You have to observe your trees regularly As much as you observe your trees … that much the relationship with your trees … will become stronger Such time will come, when .. Language of the trees … you will begin to understand The trees also say something Along with the weather … they change themselves Some time full of new foliage and shoots … Or sometimes it becomes like that gets tired You can only observe the upper potion of a tree Seeing which you have to understand … what is going on, under the soil When you see a green blossoming tree …

Then understand- their rootball too … is in the same condition New shoots means new roots Seasonal plants … which you grow for blooms and fruits etc. … I’m not talking about that I’m talking about the long living plants Not any long living trees … grow continuously They grow on a particular season … and on another season … take rest also which is … called dormancy period Wht is the perfect time to work on bonsai ?

Hello brothers and sisters, I warmly welcome all of you to Be The CREATOR channel Friends, I’m going to present today a workshop on bonsai This tamarind tree you are seeing has been growing in this pot for the last 15 years and has grown wild like this carelessly. The taper, ramification and trunk height it has are not bonsai suitable at all So how can you fix this, how can you give the bonsai look to a wildly grown tree? That’s what I’m going to share with you today. The work I’ll do, you do not need any description, and you will understand it while watching The first thing that I will do is correction of its wrong ramifications and wrong taper For this we need to have some major trunk chop, so let’s start friends Look, I have given a picture, by which I am changing its shape Now I am removing the bark of the branch which I have just cut off What will be the result of it? Its wood will dry up and then it will be easy to work on it Now look at the trunk heights and the taper which is not appropriate If I do the ground level here then its perfect look can be found So what I have to do here, I have to grow roots on this level To develop the root, I have to do ground layering here If I get root here with the help of ground layering, then I can raise the ground level too So from this place I will do the ground laying, I will get root from the place where I am cutting Then this will become the ground level Ground layering is the same way as you do in air-layering And now soil mixture, 40% gardening soil and 60% cocoa peat And this plastic pot has open from both sides I will put the soil inside it and it will grow roots inside it I’m putting some little pebbles and sand on top so that my soil doesn’t get wash out during the watering Now watering I’ll be watering it very well There is no dearth of moisture in any way Because, if the soil becomes dry then new grown roots can be burnt Here’s the shape after work And here it is 45 days later New look of the tree Lots do new shoots and flowers are here, it’ll fruit now This is a sweet tamarind tree I don’t need these new shoots, so I’ll remove them It needs little pruning, or it’ll grow lengthy To control the growth I’ve to prune them Here it is after prune Let’s watch how the new root ball grow after 45 days Yes it grew very nicely Now I’ll let it grow more and in early monsoon I’ll separate it and plant it in new pot If you think this video is helpful then please Like & Share it and don’t forget to subscribe to my channel That’s all for now friends,see you soon on next video Till then Goodbye

HIBISCUS BONSAI Step-1, Grow in Just Three years from Cuttings, Be the Creator, Nov.18

Within coming three years ….. do you want to be a creator of a bonsai like this? Then watch this video tutorial ….. Obviously till the end. Easiest Way to make Hibiscus Bonsai, …. Today I’m going to share with you. Namastey This is Samar … welcomes you to Be The CREATOR Channel To make Hibiscus bonsai in the shortest time …. the first step would be ….. to collect a plant which has …. a thicker trunk. You can take nursery plant, you can make plant through air-layering your self …. or … you can grow plant through cutting propagation. Here I start with cuttings. You must choose a hardwood cutting like this. Hibiscus ….. cuttings roots easily but to propagate hardwood cuttings you have to …. start from early Monsoon I’ve taken 3 cuttings …. these are of Pink variety. This small terracotta pot is …. enough for their rooting Soil I’ll use is … mixture of leaf compost and garden soil … in 2 : 1 ratio. There’s no need of rooting hormone for hibiscus.

It roots naturally very well. Drainage hole must be clear. No waterlog should be there. After drying the top soil …. I’ll water it. Within about 14 to 21 days it roots. And new shoots start sprouting Couple of months … growing them in the same pot I’ve to … transplant them. Best time to repot is late Monsoon. I’ve chosen Pink variety because …. it continuously …. blooms and it’s leaves are … smaller than other varieties. All three cuttings propagated well I’ll grow two of these and … third one, I’ll gift my cousin Let remove them from pot. Well grown root ball. I’ll separate all the three plants. I’ll use this plastic pot to train them for next one year. I arranged 6 drainage hole under. And soil is same … garden soil & leaf compost mixture. A little root trim. this is tropical Hibiscus. In hot climate it blooms regularly. If you are from cold climate then … you should take perennial Hibiscus variety. After potting …. strong watering. After a week under the shade, then I’ll …. keep it under sun again.

on coming February I’ve to work on it again. It has settled in new pot well. Leaves turned to deep green. And blooming regularly too. I’ve crossed the first step to make a Hibiscus bonsai. Second step in next February. The work to do on it then …. also I’ll share with you That’s all for now … see you on next video … till then Goodbye. Thanks for watching. .
