Welcome to my channel today i’m going to create a Tanuki bonsai to create tanuki i just select a Chinese em to make a bonsai before making tanuki preparing the Chinese em plant first i just remove the pot and soil after to create a tanuki we must need a piece of strong dead wood now i just take an old juniper branch this branch treated and prepared for tanuki we can see the shaped and carved line and some some small holes in the branch so it can be used as the deadwood for our Tanuki after attach the Chinese em into the carved line of the deadwood now i’m using a black sellotape and 1mm thick aluminum wire to attach the chinese em after potting tanuki bonsai put the bonsai soil in the pot and place the plant in the pot make sure the roots must be contacted with the soil then add some bonsai soil this dead wood does not rot or spoil when watering because i have treated the dead wood with a chemical preseravative by soaking it in a wood sealer for two weeks then letting it dry for six months.
so this plant can live long in this dead wood with moisture pour water once in 3 days keep in full shade for few weeks .

Welcome to my channel in this video i’m going to show you the bonsai defoliation this is a ficus bonsai tree cut the leaves using twig shear we can also use leaf cutter defoliation is one of the techniques mainly used to reduce the size of leaves and also stimulate growth and increase the number of leaves over time defoliation stimulates production of delicate new branchlets allowing twice the growth in a single growing season before defoliation ,be sure the tree is healthy If the tree is unhealthy to begin with, defoliating can kill it using the tools and methods for defoliation leaves and buds may sometimes be pinched off with the fingers but it is best to have a good pair of sharp pruning scissors keep shears clean by wiping them with antiseptic after complete defoliation, place the bonsai in partial sun and pour less water after defoliation because there are no leaves to nourish do not attempt to defoliate during the dormant seasons of spring and winter in summer trees are actively growing leaves after two weeks new buds will begin to appear after three weeks after five to six weeks in this time we can give enough water and nutrients to the bonsai tree thanks for watching
