The Bonsai experiment


Two weeks ago I was jumping through some web pages and i come over the Bonsai trees, I like the idea and the over-all tree looks and shapes, later I fond the Bonsai kit in amazon, so i add it to my cart and 10days later I got it (International Shipping).

Now, I will start this experiment of growing a Bonsai 🙂 I will do some other posts about this project to follow up.

The Bonsai kit:

Contain:

  • Plastic Bags
  • Peat plugs
  • labeling sticks
  • 6 pots
  • 3 packets of seed: (Seeds are)
    • Silver Birch (Betchula Pendula)
    • Red Maple (Acer Rubrum)
    • Mountain Pine (Pinus Mugo Pumilio)
  • instruction book





The instruction:
Ok, it was not easy to understand the instruction, I tried to simplify it into some point and I hope I am right.
1. To put the seeds in water for (24 hours)
2. Then put the compost discs in water for some time it will absorbs water it will swell.
3. Open it and put it in the pots.
4. Add the seeds to each pots. (label each pots with the date and seeds name)
5. Put the pots in the Plastic Bags for 2-3 week in cool place.
6. Then move the Plastic Bags into refrigerator for 4-6 weeks. (not sure about the points 5 and 6)
7. Now, after that the seeds should be start germinate!! so we then remove it from the bags.

This process should take 1 year before the Bonsai Tree takes it shape. I will do other post with more photos of this experiment.
