SAVE A DYING PLANT: Tips/Hacks | How to Tell My Plant is Dead or Alive? | Revive a dead plant

Hello Friends! Today we will cover two gardening topics in this video. Firstly we will look into How to tell if a plant is dead or alive and secondly on How to revive a dying plant that is How to recover or save an almost dead plant or a dying plant with a scientific basis. That�s coming up.. Welcome back! If you are a hobby gardener or interested in growing plants, Consider subscribing to this channel. Also TURN ON the notification bell icon and you won�t miss anything. First of all, we will look into the important signs and symptoms to declare a plant dead or alive and if alive � how critical its condition is and whether its resuscitation or revival is possible or not and should be attempted or not.

At the end we will look into the hacks to save a dying plant. The question – Is my plant dead? seems easy question to answer, but the truth is that telling whether a plant is truly dead can be a difficult task sometimes. Plants do not have vital signs like a heartbeat or respiratory movements and out that would make it hence difficult to tell if it is truly dead or alive. Instead, you have to rely on some subtle clues or signs. 1. First Sign is your plant should have lost all of its leaves or the leaves have all gone brown and dry.

But wait Do not Panic Here, we will go on checking the next vitals of the plant. 2. Check the stems. The stems of the plant should be pliable and firm and will have a green cast on the inside if they are still alive. Check by scratching the stem, if its green and juicy, its still alive and If the stem is mushy or brittle, then am afraid, you have to go and check the next sign. 3. Check the roots for the same. The roots, too, should be pliable but firm. If both the stems and roots are brittle or mushy, the plant is dead and no point in wasting time on reviving these plants. 4. And one more question is Is the Plant Really Worth Saving? The next step is to decide if you really want to make the effort of nursing the plant back to health. Keep in mind that a plant may still die despite your best efforts. Also, the plant will look utterly pathetic for weeks, months or even years. Is it worth spending the time to recover or are you getting a similar healthy plant at your local nursery or store for a reasonable price? If this is a plant that has sentimental value or is hard to find, than it is certainly worth saving.

Otherwise, you should just drop it. Well, Now on the Plant Reviving Hacks: 1. What to Do When Only the Roots are Still Alive? If the roots are still good, but the stems are dead, you will be hoping that the plant re-grows from the roots. 1. Cut away the dead stems by scratching and checking its alive or not and also checking its pliability. Sometimes as you get closer to the roots, the parts of the stem may be still alive. If you do find living stem, try to leave as much as possible above the roots. But here you are seeing there is hardly any living stem in this plant, But the roots are still looking pliable and not brittle. But the stem looks completely dead and this plant might be difficult to save. But still I shall continue the revival process just for the sake of demonstration in this video. 2. Well, If you find no living stem, leave at 2 inches of the stem intact above the soil. 3. Now I shall apply two hacks on this poor plant. Firstly, Soak the roots in a solution of Hydrogen Peroxide for few hours. I will let you know the exact concentration of this solution shortly.

Hydrogen Peroxide is H2O2 and water is H2O, so its has an extra atom of oxygen in it and its really great for plants. By soaking your plants in hydrogen peroxide solution, it actually replicates this natural substance found in raindrops . You can watch my detailed Video on the Top benefits of Hydrogen Peroxide in gardening from a link at top right corner of this video � but after you finish this video. 4. Well, the concentration for this solution is 1 part of hydrogen peroxide in 30 parts of water. 5. Then repot this poor plant in a good well draining regular potting soil or mix you use for your plants. Then the second hack is whenever you water this plant, of course after checking the soil surface for dryness. You add Epsom salt of about 2 teaspoons in 500 ml of water. Epsom Salt contains hydrated magnesium sulfate and Magnesium helps strengthen the plant’s cell walls which helps in absorption of nutrients from the soil by these roots.

6. Then few more tips to follow are: 7. Place the plant in conditions where it will get roughly less than half the amount of sun that is normally recommended for that plant. 8. Water only when the soil is dry to the touch. 9. Finally If the plant is recovering, you will see new stems sprout from around the remaining stem in one or two months, otherwise you can declare as completely dead and perform it last rights. If you still do not want to give up, recheck the roots to see if the plant has died completely. So there we have it folks, That was our interesting topic on saving a dying plant.

Turn Apple Seeds Into A Tree

Hey guys it’s good to see you again I’m back today with the fun and simple little experiments that you can try at home the only materials are going to need for this project are an apple a knife a ziplock bag and some paper towel now for this project today I thought it’d be fun to see if we could actually sprout an apple seed now when you were a kid there’s a good chance your parents told you not to eat apple seeds or swallow watermelon seed because it would sprout a tree in your stomach but that’s not necessarily true because there’s quite a process to getting a seed to sprout and that is the purpose of this experiment today now to get started we need to extract the seeds from our Apple and so you could just eat it and pull the seeds out as you do or you could grab a knife and cut very carefully at a 45 degree angle to the center okay so once you’ve got your seeds separated from the apples go ahead and grab one sheet of paper towel and something like this little water mixture all we’re going to do is take our paper towel we’re going to fold it in half lengthwise and set it down the counter we’re going to use our little mixture to give it five to six sprays on one side then flip it over and give it five to six shots on the other side the goal is we want to get this things damp but we don’t want it to be wet all right with our paper towel moistened we can go ahead and take a few of our apple seeds and place them down into a line somewhere in the top half area the only thing left to do after that is to fold the paper towel in half over top of the seeds place it into the ziplock bag and seal it tight so there we have a guys just like that we now have five of our apple seeds tucked away inside with moist paper towel and locked into the block bag by the way it’s not a bad idea to mark the date under the bag so you know when the three weeks is up the only thing left to do now is to tuck this away deep into the back of our fridge and completely forget about it for the next three weeks now it’s just magic of editing we fast forward into the future three weeks with a simple clap of our hand boom here we are three weeks later let’s go check our result all right I’m actually really curious to see what we got here this bag has done nothing but sit in that fridge for three weeks in the dark completely in neglect didn’t the first thing I notice is the paper towel is actually still quite moist still quite down which would make sense because it was in a sealed ziplock bag all right let’s peel back the top layer until we’ve got oh my goodness look at that our seeds have actually sprouted some more than others these two over here seem to have taken off quite vigorously and viciously and these two over here you can see little sprouts and this one’s got a little blood coming out there as well all five of our seeds was sprouted which i think is pretty cool and now if we wanted to we could move these things to a seed starter to help them establish some roots and begin budding into a tree and if we wanted to we could actually grow them into apple trees which is kind of mind-blowing but I have to crush your expectation even if you put years and years of effort into growing your own apple tree the chances of your apples tasting like the one you grew this from are very very slim the reason is because in our industry today most of the apples are grafted onto existing root structures so even though you use the seeds from an apple you like the apples you grow from it will taste completely different so there you have it guys now you know how to take the seeds right out of the apples you’re eating stick them in the fridge for a few weeks and grow an apple tree right in your own backyard thanks for joining me for this experiment I’ll be looking for the next one talk to you then so though but now you know what the paper towels for hey guys thanks for watching and remember I’m giving away prizes now on every new video all you have to do to qualify is subscribed to my channel ring the bell and select to be notified when my next videos get released the secret link to my giveaways will be pinned in the comments for the first 12 hours if you like what I’m doing show your support right now by giving this video a big thumbs up and share with a friend I love you back I’ll see you next time

Bonsai Art & Care |Austin Bonsai Society |Central Texas Gardener

The ancient art of bonsai live strong under Elaine’s heirloom trees. A member of the Austin Bonsai Society and founder of the Texas State Bonsai Exhibit, she shares her love and knowledge behind the cultivation of these miniature living sculptures. She discovered their spiritual connection to nature when her husband was stationed in Japan. – And so I took a class there, and since my husband is Air Force, we moved 18 times, and I didn’t get to do that much until we settled here.

He retired, and then I could do my hobby. – As I was a very very young child, my parents in the military lived in Hawaii and went to a sushi restaurant. On the top floor, there was a bonsai display, and I remember at the age of about 3 years old – tiny child walking up and looking up into these bonsai trees and wondering that they were huge but they were small.

– I’ve been involved in bonsai for about five years, but the interest began all the way in elementary school. – After college, he got back into bonsai, tending them on this patio. – People with art degrees love it. Young people are getting more involved in bonsai because it’s a focused art, and it’s a creation, and you tell a story. – The story behind this would be that perhaps there was a hurricane or something that pushed the tree over and then it started growing again once it was sideways. – Bonsai design often takes its cue from nature. – Bonsai represents tenacity and endurance, and you have things that have experienced trauma or have experienced stress in the environment. – When stress occurs on a bonsai, like bores in the trunk of Elaine’s live oak, her skillful hands added it to the story. – It’s still enjoyable to look at to me. – And those sort of things – they bring a kind of devastated beauty. – It used to be a forest, and I’d had another tree on the other side.

A deer came along and jerked that tree out, and this is its replacement. – Balance and emphasis comprise two elements of bonsai design. – Bonsai has a front, it has a viewing angle. If you imagine that it’s actually turned sideways, you don’t get as much of that. – Like any plant, success begins at root level. – Sometimes you can get them in department stores where there’s gravel glued on top just for appearance. First thing you do is you take off all that glued gravel because you need water to penetrate through the root system. – Avoid potting soil or compost. Bonsai need sifted large granules for aeration in shallow containers. – The various components of bonsai soil include shale or calcine clay, akadama, which is a Japanese form of clay, sifted pine bark. and frequently red lava. So our finished bonsai soil is very porous, allows for a lot of oxygen to reach the roots, and prevents root rot.

– Elaine reserves a greenhouse for tropicals. – They would normally live outside in warmer climates such as Florida, South Carolina. – Bonsai trees like Oaks Ashton and prison Elms need winter’s cold. Trees that change color in fall before dropping their leaves need that natural cycle. – They stay outside all the time, so when people put them in their house they wonder why they die. – Still, outdoor plants must be protected in winter since roots are restricted. – I put them on the ground in between the benches, and then if it’s going to have a hard freeze I can cover all of them at the same time to keep them protected from the wind. – Periodically we will take them inside, and we’ll show them when we have guests, when we have special events.

– Bonsai don’t use gallons of water, but they do need thorough soaking. – There’re holes in the bottom of every pot, and I think that’s what so many people – mistake in raising bonsai – they don’t water them enough, so the water drains out the holes in the bottom of the pot. – Training takes time. Every few years when roots have filled the pot, they trim back when dormant. Growing in flat pots, rather than deep ones, encourages horizontal roots. – After about three years of being in the bonsai training container that we see here, it’s actually a lot like a cat litter size box, we’re able to begin putting it into an entry level show-grade pot. We can take a tree from a training pot that’s a lot deeper than is really necessary for a finished showpiece and work with it for a few years until we feel like it’s ready to be moved from its training pot into a finished show pot, which is going to be quite a bit shallower. And what this will do is give proportion to the trunk.

– Part of the art form of bonsai is that it’s in a pot, and the pots can be just as artistic as the trees themselves. This one is a handmade pot. – Pruning for design can take years. – When you go to start working on a bonsai it’s like everything else disappears: all the worry, all the fret that you go through in life. – This looks more like a bush instead of a tree. This branch is very long. You will cut it back. And the way you trim it is at the angle of you want it to grow. I want this branch to grow this way and not be longer than all the others. – There’s a Japanese word called “bunzhen”, and it’s basically this long thin line that resembles calligraphy. It’s beautiful. There’s cascade, so it looks like a tree is growing up on a mountain, and it’s cascading down the side. – Anodized aluminum or annealed copper wires help shape. – And that is just there to give the branch direction, to change the angle, maybe give it a little bit of movement, and much like braces on your teeth, you take them off once it is set.

– Many plants qualify for bonsai. The Austen Bonsai Society rescues plants from the wild or starts from nursery pots. – This is a lower pendulum, and it’s a fringe lower pendulum. – This is a Japanese boxwood that a lot of people have in their front yards, and when people re-landscape their plants or re-landscape their yards, sometimes you know these things become throwaways, but to us – years have been spent growing out the trunks, growing out the branches, and we then give it shape and form to – often to mimic trees in nature is the point, but sometimes we’ll do things with an artistic touch that doesn’t even mimic trees in nature. – This is a trident maple that was field grown for about five to seven years, and it’s been topped from about 14 feet down to its current one foot stump, and then a progression in about three years, we might see this evolving into a beginning of a tree that has some structure of branching and some curvature that has been applied by wire.

– To help new growers get started, the Austin Bonsai Society holds meetings and workshops along with its annual show and sale at Zilker Botanical Garden. Elaine founded the Texas Bonsai Exhibit to preserve heritage plants in private gardens until a permanent exhibit is built. – We have these beautiful old trees that people have had and they’ve spent decades working on and then maybe they’re not able to care for them anymore, so we are able to care for them and then put them back out to view – for the public to view later on. – There’s one in the National Arboretum in Washington that is 400 years old. It came through the atomic bomb in Hiroshima, and last year – they never knew exactly whom it belonged to or where it came from, you know, specifically – two boys showed up at the National Arboretum looking for their grandfather’s tree.

That was it. So they found a little bit more of the history of that tree. .

I brought it from the market these are made of plastics so it’s very light weighted and very sturdy we have to spread some small stone first in the lower part of this pot after this, I am spreading some wooden husk over it, it’s totally optional so that the water can drain properly now I am giving this homemade bonsai soil in a thin layer we shouldn’t make it very thick so that the plant can easily be planted now I take this plant this soil is bonsai soil so we don’t have to exclude this soil, and if we do then maybe the plant will get hurt I am just going to plant it but before that we just fresh it a little so that it will be not get bluffy now we have to fill this pot with the soil to half inch below from now we have to give it water daily after one month when this plant will settle here properly from then we have to provide liquid fertilizer time to time at an interval of 15 days we don’t have to give these fertilizer weekly because using these fertilizer weekly can make the growth of the plants very fast.

And that’s not our purpose. our motive is to keep these plants small so we have to give these plants nutrients very low in proportion only keep them alive and give them a minimum growth these are Arjun plants. the collecting and growing video of these plants I have already uploaded in my channel I told you at the starting that I will give that previous video with this video but unfortunately, I have to deduct that video because then the video will be very long that’s why I am giving that video link on the description, if you want to watch it then click on that link.

after repotting we have to give the water properly once after that, we have to give water to the plants after watching the soil the roots will get rotten if we give excess water that’s why we have to check the soil carefully when you see the upper portion of the soil is getting dry then give water to it. .

How to create a Bonsai tree (DIY)

How to create a Bonsai tree The best way to start your journey into Bonsai art, is to buy a starter kit and grow and train a Bonsai tree yourself. This tree is a Juniper plant which is about four years old. After pruning, wiring and repotting, this was the result. Now let’s start from the beginning by removing the top layer of soil to see where the first roots appear. We carefully lift the tree from its pot and remove loose soil using chopsticks.

Now that we can see where the main roots appear we can decide on the best front of the tree. We also take into consideration the shape and taper of the trunk and the position of the main branches. The next step is to carefully remove any dead branches dangling growth or dead foliage using scissors. This basic cleaning will reveal the structure of the plant helping us in deciding how to design the tree. Before cleaning After cleaning The next step is pruning. To create a more compact design we remove the top of the tree using a concave cutter. This branch will be bent upwards later on and function as the new apex. Pruning is considered the most difficult part of creating a Bonsai tree.

Try to follow our lead or consider enrolling in our “Getting Started with Bonsai course” where we explain the process of Bonsai design in great detail. For the curriculum and a free lesson go to: You can safely prune up to 1/3 of your tree’s foliage. At this point, we are finished pruning the tree and work starts on wiring the branches. We start with wiring the main trunk which is still flexible enough to bend. Carefully wrap wire around the trunk at an angle of 45 degrees holding the wire with one hand, and the trunk with the other. Now we carefully bend the trunk to compact the tree as well as to create a less formal appearance. Next we wire the main branches starting with the lower branches and slowly working our way up to the apex. Try to wire two branches with one piece of wire. Between these two branches make sure to wrap the wire at least once around the trunk for stability.

Hold the branch with one hand, and the wire with the other. Reposition your fingers after each twist to protect the branch. The wire should be thick enough to hold the branch in the desired shape once we bend it. This is the branch that will function as the apex of the tree. Remaining wire can be cut off using a wire cutter. Once you finish wiring the branches, you can start shaping them moving your way up the trunk, towards the apex of the tree. Next we prepare the Bonsai pot before we start repotting. A Bonsai pot should have at least one drainage hole. We attach a mesh to cover this hole with a short piece of wire. We also prepare two long wires which will be used later to attach the tree to the pot.

Next we untangle the roots carefully using chopsticks. Using scissors we prune long roots. We can prune up to 1/3 of the roots if needed. Now we add some soil in the pot. Place the tree slightly off-center in the pot keeping in mind its front and the most beautiful angle for displaying it. Once you are satisfied with the placement attach the tree to the pot using the wires we prepared earlier. Now we add more soil. Use chopsticks to make sure all air-pockets are filled with soil. We have pruned, wired and repotted the tree. So what’s next? First we water the tree. We will wait with fertilizing for a month and make sure that the wires are not damaging the branches after a few months. Before After On our website we offer several online courses including our “Getting Started with Bonsai course” and the “Bonsai Beginners’ Course”.

Bonsai Workshop on Ficus Benjamina 2/2, Trunk chop, Pruning, Root ball correction, Repot, Aug.’18

Now it will be transplanted after root ball correction I’ll return to the video after washing the root ball Here is the root ball, after wash First prune, much longer roots And then prune all the roots going straight down Benjamin is a toxic plant … wash your hands well after the work This is the primary source of indoor allergens Which is after dust and pets known as the third most common cause of indoor allergens So, before you grow it Indore, you definitely have to think Bonsai tree should be well balanced See how this is standing straight Now combing the root ball to make it tangle free And where there is tangled root, it will be pruned As a result… we will gradually get a good radial root base Will prune the roots going upwards Finally, to reduce the radius of the root ball…

I’ll trim the root ball In such a circular way Now the tree is well balanced This root… I’ll cut flush Let these two roots stay now There is a crossing root here… it will be removed A final touch up Benjamina is a very sensitive plant If you change its position… then some of its leaves can fall Do not panic, actually …. it does so to grow new leaves according to light I’ll pot it into my smart bonsai pot According to the pot …

I’ve to reduce a bit more root I’ll have to pot it up a bit up Potting mix …. I have made from coco peat perlite and vermiculite Covering drainage hole with plastic mesh And now… a layer of soil Centre will have to be slightly elevated By doing so … there will be no air pocket under the root ball v To reduce internal gap in the soil… Use a nail tool The smaller the gap, the more the soil level will go down I’ll add some more soil See the hold of the tree became strong Now the edge of the pot, is to reduce the gap in the soil Keep Watering until the water … drains out of the drainage hole It is necessary to give external support of few stones….

until the tree gets settled in pot It likes water, especially moisture, very much Do not let the soil dry completely In humid condition, Benjamina grows better Except monsoon … once or twice every month…. Dilute a pinch of NPK in 4 litters of water…. and spray it over the canopy Your Benjamina will remain healthy Here is up date 21 days after potting That’s all for now friends See you on the next video Till then goodbye .
