Indoor Bonsai – Bonsai Trees for Beginners – Indoor Bonsai Care मार्क बोन्साई 03

 My name is Mark D’Cruz of Ma-Ke Bonsai and I’m going to talk to you about indoor bonsai care. There are effectively, over time we kind of learned that there’s nine different conditions that need to be met. First of all, light. Light is crucial to bonsais and often, without light, bonsais will perish. They will die slowly but they will die. Growing it on a window like this, a nice big bay window, ideally, it should be a south facing window, but if you don’t have one, then any facing window is good. For some species you may need to add extra light in which case you use a light like this. This particular light uses a white light of 64,000 Kelvin which is ideal for growing bonsai. The next thing that you need to consider is of course water. Plants, like outdoor plants, need to be watered regularly when they are dry to the touch. Water them like you would do to outdoor plants. Ideally I would dunk them. Give them a dunking in a basin or a bucket. That helps to make sure that all the bowls are full.

Another important factor to consider in growing trees indoors is heat. Now in a modern home like ours in the UK, that’s not really much of a problem because central heating takes care of heating in winter time. The only consideration is just to make sure that you do not place your bonsai directly over the heat source like, for example, a radiator or something like that, in which case, the dry heat from the radiator is going to kill the bonsai.

Bonsais need to be cooler in the night than during the day but not too cold. Many times bonsais will get too cold in the night so you need to monitor the temperature. Above 6 degrees is tolerable. Below 6 degrees gets difficult for the bonsai in the night. Plants need humidity. If you have a dry room which rooms get very dry with the central heating, the plants will suffer quite considerably.

So that’s why we have humidity trays under each of the bonsais. That provides a little microclimate for the tree so that it manages to deal with the humidity. Bonsais need to have air circulating around them. So if you put a bonsai in a place where there is no air circulation, eventually what happens is that fungus and other pests settle on it and it gets damaged, and it will die because of over fungus on the tree. Feeding and fertilizing. Use a balanced fertilizer 4/4/4 strength of 6/6/6. If you’re using a liquid fertilizer, feed every two weeks. If you’re using a pellet-type fertiliser, feed every two months or when the pellets disappear. Just like outdoor trees, indoor trees will suffer from from pests and disease. You need to keep a lookout for them. Indoor trees, because there’s a lack of circulation can suffer from pests quite often.

Scale is quite a problem indoors as is aphids and spider mites. Bonsai pots and trees need to be kept clean. You need to regularly clean them out, brush them out so that if there’s any dead matter in the trees, remove any dead wood is removed, any dead leaves are removed so that circulation is always encouraged by cleaning up the thing. Keep the top of the pot clean because then no bugs and no pests will settle in the dead matter that’s on top of the soil. And finally, dormancy. All trees need dormancy. They need to rest. Another thing to remember is that if you are growing, like I am here on the window sill, in the winter time, do not close the curtains over the plants. The warm air from the room will not come onto the plants and then the tree will just suffer from the cold air that comes in from the outside, and the coolness that comes out.

And that’s how you look after indoor bonsais. .

How To Create A Bonsai Tree – The Transformation

The first thing to do is to study the tree and take your time. Really look at the structure. This way of thinking will greatly increase the potential and the results of this future bonsai tree. Remove excess soil so you can see where the root surface is ending and the main trunk is beginning. Now it’s time to remove all dead branches and foliage so we can open up the structure even more. Next step will be to select branches.

And you should always go for the branches that are strong vigorous and growing from the best position and at the best angle. Remove the weak and juvenile foliage. Work your way from the bottom to the top. Now it’s time to wire the tree. And we do this because we want a tree that we can shape. Wire the main trunk first. Not too hard and not too loose. When you are applying the wire, use it as a lever. Apply pressure and tension with one hand holding the wire in place while coiling around the main trunk with the other hand. Use one piece of wire for two branches or more if possible.

That gives you stability and anchoring. And it also saves you a lot of wire. Styling and shaping your tree is one of the last parts in the whole design process. This gives us the satisfaction of having the tree exactly as we would imagine. Something that is hard to achieve but can be done with experience and practice So, while bending a bonsai branch it’s important to know that you need to keep pressure and hold tension with your thumbs on the wire and not the branch itself. Because then it might break.

As you can see.. this tree has a lot of feeder roots to work with when Spring comes around the corner. But until then I’m going to let it have it’s Winter’s sleep. This is Johan, and you have been watching “Bonsai Talk.” .

How To Grow Bonsai Trees From Seed – Subtitles Available

Hello, my name is Vinny and today’s story is about how this tiny seed changed into a bonsai tree in just 2 years. this tree is known as white lead tree in English and in India it is called as Su-babul in Hindi. it is an extremely fast growing tree and in many countries it is banned because it is considered as a weed. this tree was born in the pot, in pure garden soil and has survived the peak of my ignorance because I got started in bonsai at that time, around 2 years back. so let me show you some close-ups first and then I’ll tell you more about this this tree was almost 8 feet tall when i first cut it off, so it was chopped off at this height and now the wound has kind of healed nicely I have never wired this tree. I have always pruned it and kept it short and instead of wiring, what I have done actually is preferring to keep these branches downward facing, using twine and this twine has hooks like this, so these metal hooks, they pull the branch down and are inserted or pushed into one of the side holes.

So depending on how much tension I want, I can keep varying the position of the holes. so I kind of like it, the way it has come out now. of course, I will need to do some wiring also but for the time being the main branches are all held down in position with this. i somehow … personally, i don’t like wiring much. I have seen what good it can do but I have a slight aversion to it and besides, good quality wire, Aluminium wire is expensive. so there is a shortage of wire in my collection. so wherever I can get away with this kind of technique I do that but where wire is absolutely essential I do get into that. so this is mainly clip & grow technique and in one of the videos I saw Nigel Saunder’s of the Bonsai Zone explained that most of the amateur people what they’re doing is clip and clip. they are not allowing the plant to grow.

so this was a mistake which I was doing and I then corrected myself. so I clip and let it grow, then again clip, again let it grow because having read the styling techniques I was saying okay this branch is wrong or there are two at the same point and I would immediately go and prune it. so, as a result what happens is the plant is never allowed to grow, it’s always fighting this pruning disease. you have got to let the plant grow wild then clip, again let it grow wild then clip again. so that’s how it’s supposed to go. i was very naive. in part 2 of this video I’ll be covering the following things – .
