The Bonsai experiment

December 27, 2017 3 comments

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:


  • 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.

In a cold and cloudy day this tree stand 100meter away alone and with no leaves as it say’s “.. Here am I!”

Using Nikon 18-300m lens is very helpful where it covers great range for close and far subjects.

We all know the trees, Trees are an important component for it’s provision of a weather-sheltered ecosystem in and under their foliage, also play an important role in producing oxygen and reducing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, as well as moderating ground temperatures. Wood from trees is a building material, as well as a primary energy source in many developing countries.

The photos here are from my last trip to London (August 2010). The First one (to the left) you can find a HEAR shape on it.
