About when to start wiring your bonsai

Post  Mira-Ju on Wed May 29, 2013 5:45 am

Hi i have these plants and i think they are stunning blue jacaranda, at least thats what i bought.
Im wondering about when i could start wiring? These pants are about 9-12 cm. I cant find anything about how long one should wait before you can start wiring.

Any suggestons, tips etc about wiring are also welcome Smile
Thanks for help!


Here is a couple of pictures:

Hello and welcome to IBC.

Do you have any pics of the plants that you could show us as seeing them would help us to give you advice.

You are a long way from wiring, what you have are seedlings. We are talking possible years.
If you want to have something to wire go to a regular nursery and buy a Juniper in a three or seven gallon container.

Oh ok, thats for clearing that out. Waiting is no problem, i was just wondering about how long one should wait, was thinking maybe you start wiring before the seedling branches become too thick

What you are calling branches are really compound leaves. I don't see any branches yet.
