A bonsai tree creating yourself in this video i will show the progression of this young plant first step start to clean out the tree removing dead things and remove unwanted leaves and branches after cleaning next pruning the tree before pruning your tree decide on what shape you intend to create once you have decided which branches should be removed observe your tree and decide which branches do not fit the desired design and will need to be removed prune slowly working your way up the tree start with freeing up the trunk of it if you are pruning big or large tree when pruning larger branches you need a concave cutter it’s a young plant so there is no large branches after pruning the larger branches focus on smaller branches until you are satisfied with the result pruning leaves leaves that have grown out of shape using a twin shear we prune long shoots slowly hold the branches and prune the leaves prune branches and leaves that do not fit the desired design after pruning your tree next shaping the tree start to wiring the tree selecting the proper thickness of wire In this tree I selected a 3mm thickness wire wrap the wire around the trunk branch wiring i selected a 2mm wire to wiring the branches first wrap the wire neatly in line with the previously applied 3mm wire the side branch, you can wire the smaller branch growing to the right with a 1mm wire when multiple wires are applied at the same part of the trunk or branch try to put them neatly in line and continue wiring the branch after wiring bending the wired branches after having wired the entire tree you can start bending and repositioning the branches use your hands to hold the outside of the branch with your fingers now bend the branch from the inside of the curve with your thumbs this way you reduce the risk of splitting branches by spreading the force around the outside of the branch when a branch is in position stop moving it as repeated bending will likely damage the branch bend straight sections of branches slightly to make these look more natural after wiring your tree potting in bonsai pot preparing to pot the tree first remove the old soil with a tool do not put in water to remove the soil use a tool to remove the soil carefully you can also use a chopstick to remove soil starting on the sides and bottom of the tree avoid damaging roots in the process after removing the soil next prune the roots cut away any roots that have grown too long do not prune more than 40% of all roots the tree is now ready to replace in the pot select a small size bonsai pot covering the drainage holes with mesh add a thin layer of heavy grain soil first next add another thin layer of bonsai soil place the tree in the pot and then add bonsai soil around the tree remove air pockets in the soil and fill all the air pockets around the root system use a small stick or chopstick to fill the air pockets after adding soil on the top layer add the small stones this will help to keep the soil moisture finally water the tree thoroughly place the tree in the shade and fertilize
Locate tree stumps, pins with copper wire split more help to easy twist over creating twist more will make them beautiful better the first branch be located about 1/3 of the stem height from the tree stump split copper wire strand to 3 parts, first branch is 1 part of wire, the remaining stem is 2 parts. the second branch is about 1/3 from the first branch to the tree top continue split copper wire strand to 3 parts, second branch is 1 part of wire, the remaining stem is 2 parts. the third branch is 1/3 from the second branch to the tree top and continue split copper wire strand to 3 parts, third branch is 1 part of wire, the remaining stem is 2 parts. the fourth branch is 1/3 from the third branch to the tree top and continue split copper wire strand to 3 parts, third fourth is 1 part of wire, the remaining stem is 2 parts.
continue rules with to fifth branch viewed down from the tree top, branches should alternately alternate in a vortex 1st branch and 2nd branch generates 120 degrees, 2nd branch and 3rd branch generates 120 degrees,similar to the remaining branches shape trunk to inclined forward stump diameter ( A ) tree height is 6 times the tree stump diameter (A). edit stump diameter to suitable better apply same rules with small branch on the main branch branch connected stems should be down make foliage The roots should be pulled out width of roots ( B ) about 2/3 width of foliage zones thank for watching .
Welcome to everyone today i’m going to work on dwarf pomegranate bonsai repotting dwarf pomegranate is a very popular choice for growing bonsai re-potting should only be carried out every two or three years tree needs a number of years in the ground for the trunk to become thick because the trunk will not thicken in a bonsai pot so i just repot this tree in small cement pot it’s not a bonsai pot after two years i’ll repot this tree in a small bonsai pot now i’m repotting this tree in a ordinary cement pot for the trunk to become thick first for the better drainage place a piece of jute cloth and put some stones in the bottom layer of the pot then place the tree center of the pot and add the bonsai soil pomegranate needs a potting mix that is well draining and organic nutrients mix of 60% aggregate and 40% organic is good for pomegranate trees It will also need supplements, either organic or an inorganic time release fertilizer that is specifically for plants that produce flowers and fruit If you want the tree to grow healthy flowers and fruits use a fertilizer with high phosphorous and high potassium from spring to late summer should not be fertilized in the three months following re-potting watering to the dwarf pomegranate tree tree requires regular watering to keep the soil slightly moist but not overly wet and do not allow the soil to completely dry out over water and shortage of water harm the tree reduce the watering over the winter months about wiring or shaping to the dwarf-pomegranate bonsai dwarf pomegranate trees should not be wired because tree will begin to die from the tip of its leaves or roots backward It’s much better to use the clip and grow method to shape them styling the pomegranate bonsai best as a single tree and not grouped because of the flowers and fruits the natural style is semi-cascade, informal and multi-trunk styles such as twisting trunk style leaf and branch pruning best time to prune the tree is in spring, before it begins producing new growth prune one or two sets of leaves and dead stems by hand pinching pinching-out of each first or third leaf will increase the plant’s foliage place the pomegranate bonsai tree outside this tree likes full sun and growing well in sunny area pomegranate bonsai can be grown indoors in a warm sunny site during the summer months the great advantage of placing it outdoors in summer is that it will be visited by insects that ensure pollination in winter months place the tree indoors on a bright site and watering in the winter watering your bonsai tree once or twice a week is very important avoid watering your tree when the temperature is freezing or too cold don’t water bonsai trees at nighttime and daytime is best to water watering in summer water your tree twice a day, once in the morning and in the evening don’t water the leaves of your bonsai tree when the sun is very hot because it may cause burnt leaves never water your bonsai trees when the weather is too hot because the water inside the pot may get too hot, spoiling the roots you won’t be able to water your tree every day, you need to abundantly water it before leaving put the bonsai container in a water bucket so your bonsai tree can obtain water from the bottom this helps your bonsai tree to survive for around up to 3 to 5 days pomegranate bonsai trees may be attacked by whitefly or pomegranate butterfly caterpillars to control whitefly attack spraying the bonsai tree with water spraying your pomegranate bonsai tree every few months using non-toxic insecticide that will help protect your pomegranate bonsai from pests don’t spray your bonsai tree with an insecticide if the soil is dry dwarf pomegranate bonsai trees are famous for their fruit-bearing and flowering characteristics they are both suitable for beginners and expert bonsai growers thanks for watching

Today i’m going to show you how to start a bonsai tree first you have to select a suitable tree for your climate in this video i’m selecting three ixora plants ixora is a tropical to semi-tropical evergreen plant this plant is often grown in warm and cooler climates this plant is suitable choice for bonsai next select the size of your bonsai If you’re choosing to grow your bonsai tree from a seedling or a cutting from another tree they can start off even smaller Larger plants require more water, soil, and sunlight so make sure that you have all the necessary requirements before making your bonsai next starting a bonsai first remove the current pot or container making sure not to break or hurt its main root system carefully remove the old soil with a stick or root rake tool do not damage roots or its main root system you can use chopsticks, tweezers, and similar tools are helpful for this process.
Do not remove the all soil that are attached to the roots it’s a root ball just clean the bottom part soil next pruning the roots If their growth is not adequately controlled bonsai trees can easily outgrow their containers so we must prune the roots cut any large and thick roots cut any upward-facing roots and do not prune more than 40% of all roots after pruning roots preparing to repot next select the pot deciding which pot to use is to make sure the pot is large enough to allow enough soil to cover the roots of the plant to prevent root rot, you’ll also want to ensure your pot has one or more drainage holes on the bottom before re pot the tree in the pot ensure it has a base of fresh, new soil to sit on that gives it the desired height at the bottom of the pot, add a layer of coarse-grain soil or stones as a base then add a finer, looser growing medium or soil above this use a soil that drains well regular garden soil can hold too much water and may drown the roots then place the tree in your new pot in the desired orientation finish adding well-draining soil removing air pockets remove the all air pockets using a thin stick or chopstick after removing air pockets add the soil on the top again add a final layer of moss or sandstone or small stones this can help hold the tree in place keep the tree in shade area for few days after you can place your bonsai in full sunny area finally you can grow your bonsai in outdoor or indoor watering your bonsai use spray water do not pour much water continuously be patient and spray water completely to your bonsai if your climate is hot or warm your bonsai needs every day water if you are growing your bonsai in indoor or your climate is cooler water every two days
