|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: Port Jackson Fig - grown from seed with Japanese Rock Violets
Scientific Name: Ficus rubiginosa
Date of Birth: 2007
Origin: New South Wales, Australia
Bonsai Cultivation: Prefers light to medium soil in an open, sunny position. Drought, frost and salt tolerant. In winter using fingers or scissors, tear or cut leaves in half (forms ‘branches’) and apply wire (shaping). In spring, feed with Dynamic Lifter and mulch surface. Keep moist and nitrogen low (slows growth). In summer defoliate and place in full sun (tiny leaves grow). In autumn trim and rest tree.
Age: 15 years
Pot: 25 x 20 x 8 cm ceramic, rectangular, glazed, black, Chinese.
Description: This month's Bonsai has been chosen by Liana specifically for its twisted trunk, red tinge in the leaves and ease of care. I love to grow trees from seed and watch as they form leaves, sturdy trunks and unique shapes. This beautiful tree will have a three prong/branch canopy and will be due for trimming in about three months when it’s really hot, sunny weather. The three twigs that are removed will create three baby trees and the length at which they are cut will be a decision the new owner makes. Each remaining branch will grow another two branches and after another trim, the branches will continue to multiply until a full canopy is achieved. This training will take about five years but it will be a beauty to care for and enjoy.
Port Jackson Figs handle our strong winds, summer droughts, winter frosts and the coastline salt deposits. All they ask for is a regular drink of water and a good feed of organic food such as dynamic lifter, Osmocote, composted manure or liquid fertilizer other than Fish Emulsion (Fish emulsion leaves too many deposits in the soil and poisons it).
Your responsibility for this Bonsai will be:
1. Must live outside with minimum 2 hours direct sunlight on leaves.
2. Must be watered every day from November to May (or depending on local weather).
3. Must be willing to cut leaves or branches to keep it healthy and strong.
All Bonsai Palace Bonsai are presented with a Bonsai Birth Certificate and detailed care instructions. Also, we offer a free ‘feed and groom’ tag for each Bonsai for ongoing support within three months of purchase.
