Hope for a JBP?

Post  GrantP on Tue Aug 21, 2012 1:08 pm

I've been dabbling in bonsai for about 2 years, mostly on tropical trees like serissa and ficcus. I came across two JBP in my local Bunnings and even though I live in tropical Australia I just had to get them. Mostly cos they are the iconic bonsai species but the fact I only paid $10 each didn't hurt... Very Happy



As you can see there isn't too much there but I've got them in bigger pots now and just thought I'd leave them to see for a while. I've been looking on the net but all the trees I see don't look anything like mine... I'm thinking it's cos the tree is still young (?) but the needles and candles are so much bigger than others I've seen.



Some one else suggested I try air layer the trees and just work on the bottom half? This might've been so he could take the top half too though so any other suggestions would be good please.



What are the chances of getting more branches coming out higher up? Obviously any suggestions would be great... Confused

Good evening Grant,

I am down South, not familiar at all with climate up your way. But I do understand that there members up in Brisbane who have been very successful growing JBP.

Check this one out http://www.ausbonsai.com.au/forum/viewforum.php?f=131

Best regards.

GrantP first of all this doesn't look like JPB. I would guess Sylvestris or Austrian BP
