|Our Special Bonsai of the Month:
SOLD - another fine specimen coming shortly...
This is Liana's special
Bonsai, one which she personally feels is worthy
of note because it is a promising specimen,
excellent value, and shows character.
Name: Weeping Fig
Scientific Name: Ficus benjamina
Date of Birth: 2000
Cultivation: Prefers rich, moist soil in a protected, sunny position. Drought and frost tender. Pinch back tips in summer and autumn, rest in winter and spring.
Age: 20 years
Pot: 16 x 14.5 x 6.5cm ceramic,oval, glazed, white, Chinese.
I started this Bonsai from a cutting collected from my favourite Weeping Fig which I have owned for 30 years and Iíve cherished it as it is hardy, has a beautiful, lush foliage and doesnít need special care.
For this creation from it, I found a lovely chunk of a clay pot and I added glass mirrors and squares and patterned stones. I think itís very unique. Iíve also added a sign - ĎThis way to the beachí. It has been regularly repotted, trimmed, fed and given various levels of sunshine
depending on growth requirements. Iíve aimed for a bushy look, slanting trunk and unique theme.
This Bonsai grows very rapidly in summer and autumn, then slows down in winter. Spring growth is very slow and requires protection from pests such as sucking insects (thrip and scale). Itís not especially thirsty or hungry, the leaves are green, glossy and small. It will make an ideal Bonsai pet for anyone needing a low care Bonsai that is harmonious to peace and tranquillity.
If you are not sure of your responsibility for our December Bonsai Of the Month, please note:
1. Must live outside with partial shade.
2. Must be watered every day but only once a day.
3. Must be trimmed when growing out of shape.
