Buying Bonsai

How to choose bonsai trees

Bonsai has a group of Latin names, which can help you choose how to buy the trees. For instance, if you want the whitish, pale plants you would search the group of Albescens. Albidus or albus has white growth as well. The Albiflurus group has white flowers that grow from its branches. If you want plants that adapt in land or water, you would choose the amphibious group of bonsai.

Additional groups of bonsai include angulosus, angusti-folius, arborescens, and so on. The group of Glaucus has a frosty bloom, similar to grapes. Pinous is the pine-like group of bonsai.

In short, the best way to choose bonsai for purchase is to view magazines, nurseries, or online services that provide you visuals of what you are purchasing. When you view the plants however, pay thoughtful attention to the size. For instance, if you purchase a dollar seed plant, you will not grow a tree the size you may desire. If you choose a 3.7-liter container to grow bonsai however, you can easily shape the plant to suit your needs. The Larix leptolepsis or Larix Kaempferi is one of the smaller bonsai, yet in seven years, the tree could grow up to 18 inches. The suitable try recommended for this plant is the humidity, drip trays at 10 inches by 8 inches. The cones on this tree are purple, while the foliage is brilliantly shaded in lime green. The shades change to darker greens during summer months, and in autumn, the shades turn bronze and/or yellow. The Larix Leptolepsis blooms cherries.

Starters should consider seeds, rather than the tree itself. The seeds are ideal to assist you in getting what you want. The ideal bonsai for starters is the group of Mame. Few of the Mame trees grow up to 6 inches. The minute size trees grow up to 3 inches, i.e. the infant Mame’s.

You want to avoid the Kingsville, Buxus Microphylla, boxwoods, Juniperus chinensis, Robusta green, Chinese Juniper, etc. The bonsais’ are ideal for expert bonsai growers.

How to choose liners:
Liners include the Acer Ginella. Like the Chinese elms, the tree has hedge maples. Ulmus parvifolia or the Wild Plum is other liners. Check the line of Prunus. The Chinese elms are similar to the Ulmus parvifolia, in that the actual trees grow large, and have serrated leaves. In addition, wing-like fruits grow from the tree.

Additional groups of bonsai include Virens, Viridis, Vulgaris, Xanthinus, Zonalis, and so on. One of the trees that stand erect is the group of Strictus, which these trees need careful attention to grow. The suppliers of the Strictus bonsai emerge from the Bamboo seeds. The branches include Bambus—Nutans, Tuldoides, Tuminoda, Chinomobambusa, and so on. The branches move onto Dendrocalamus Strictus, and extend to Dendrocalamus Membraceus.

How to choose imported bonsai:
If you are, importing bonsai make sure that you ask for photos and examine the tree carefully. The supplier should have no problem supplying you photos, unless the tree is not worth the price offered. If you garden will allow room for the old ivy bonsai, you may find this plant interesting.

Old ivy is a legendary folklore that associates with Bacchus. According to old folklores, the tree can heal whooping cough. If you choose the old ivy however, make sure that you provide the tree Simi-shaded area. Old ivy includes the Rhombea and the Helix. The Rhombea is delicate, whereas the Helix can stand indoor temperatures at all levels. Watering the plants require that you provide moderate treatments during winter, and often when the plant is growing.
