My close friend Wolfgang Egbert, a skilled bonsai musician from Germany, produced this little rock growing as well as kindly enabled me to republish his job as a mini-tutorial. (On facebook he on a regular basis publishes his job, if interested)

Products required to produce a tiny bonsai juniper rock growing

  • A young juniper (Right here: a 3 years of age itoigawa cutting)
  • A fascinating rock (Preferably with some gaps as well as taper)
  • Keto (An unique substratum, containing a mix of peat as well as loam)
  • Cable in various densities
  • Moss
  • Akadama

Preparing the rock

  • To start, prepare “bonsai filth”, a blend of as much as 40% Akadama (Or various other crude substratum) as well as keto. The filth ought to be soft adequate to quickly mold and mildew, yet not so damp that water trickles from it.
  • In the location where you wish to grow the juniper, stick the filth to the rock. Expand regarding you would certainly later on such as to cover the rock with moss.

Preparing the juniper
