herbert - this post has inspired me from the very beginning and it may very well be my favorite thread on the forum...
(for both the progression and the significance of the rose to you)

i have since found a dwarf rose with a very nice compact trunk and will be giving it a go...

your documentation is such that you leave very few questions unanswered, but the one i do have is:
what type of substrate have you found to work well for your rose ?

Hi Kevin,

i am not so often online here.
It´s a pleasure to me if you like this rose. For all my trees (except for Azaleeas) i have only one Substrat the last 20 years. It is a mix of pomice and Akadama.
If the pot is higher than 5 cm, i use it 50:50. >If the pot is not so high, i use 20 to 30% pomice (Bims). Unter 2,5 cm i use Akadama alone.

Also this Rose grows just in Akadama and pomice.

I hope i coud answer your question.

Herbert

thank you very much H.
very interesting how the pot height dictates substrate ratio.

i believe that deserves some serious thought.

I have also sent you a PM that i hope you see.

Hi Kevin,

very interesting how the pot height dictates substrate ratio.
i believe that deserves some serious thought.

It is very simple. A pot of 4 cm height would dry too quickly. So i use less than 50% bims.
