How to grow Ezo Pine Bonsai
I’m Nobu, I like traveling overseas and in Japan, visited 25 countries. I’ve got the license of the certificate English guide in Japan for 8 years.
I show you hidden Japan which you have never seen and heard of!
I came across the Edo Pine bonsai At Showa Kinen Park Bonsai garden.
The Ezo Pine is found in cold and marshy areas, and prefers water year round.
It is characterized by its blackish brown bark with scaly cracks.
It is highly adaptable to temperature, so it can be grown in warm areas without dying.
Avoid cold winds in winter, and shade the plants with chilled gauze (a material used to cover plants such as vegetables) in summer.
It’s to keep them cool and well-ventilated.
In the spring and fall, do this 1-2 times a day; in January and February, do this once a day.
And in the summer around July and August, do this 3 times a day.
Apply solid fertilizer once a month in April, May, September, October, and November, avoiding summer and winter.
In the middle of May, buds will appear on the tips of the fine twigs, looking like bright green caps.
Pinch off about half of the buds with your fingertips.
The most important thing is the environment.
Place the plant in a well-ventilated area with moderate sunlight.
In rare cases, pests may attach to the plant, but in such cases, spray with chemicals.
There are many materials with dense branches and leaves.
Branches should be arranged with wire on both sides to form a two-pronged shape, showing a downward bend.
And unwanted branches should be organized, with the goal of allowing every branch to receive sunlight and wind.
I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
