This is important, as knowing your equipment is key in using it properly. The more familiar you are with the quirks of any piece of equipment you use, the more efficient you are at using the item. This is particularly important for those who have to tend to a lot of plants. The more bonsai one owns, the more time is saved by not having to fight with poor quality gear.
When you are growing bonsai for the first time, you will want to approach aspects like wiring with caution. When growing bonsai, the wires should be placed on the tree in such a way that it causes bending without gouging or breaking the branch. This takes a subtle amount of pressure on the branch of the tree, and consideration on how to place the wires.
It is possible for ficus bonsai to be maintained year round, although this can damage some species of ficus. If you are planning on keeping your ficus bonsai in full leaf year round, you will need to ensure that the plant does not fall into dormancy. If the tree goes into dormancy, you should arrange conditions so that the tree can stay in dormancy, as this will prevent damage to the tree.
You can start by purchasing a tree that has already been designed. These trees are typically five to seven years old and have had their basic shape already tended to by a bonsai tree artist. These trees are easier to take care of than shaping and designing your own tree, but are also more restrictive on what can be done with them.
Domestically, many people try to grow at least one Baobab bonsai in their collection due to their odd appearance. If you are intending on keeping a Baobab bonsai, there are several things that you will need to remember. First, these trees are extremely sensitive to temperature. They will not thrive in places that get cold.
When you purchase bonsai soil, it is important that you test the soil prior to use. Good quality soils will not break down easily. You should not be able to crush it in your hand easily, or break it when doused in water and then frozen. Bonsai soil that breaks down like this will typically not last a long time and can cause some problems with certain varieties of trees.
