There's an olde german saying

Post  dick benbow on Thu Dec 04, 2014 2:37 am

That translates into english as "too soon olt and too late smart".

With the extremes of weather lately across this little blue planet of ours, where we all survive, I'm beginning to wonder about the justification to hobbies like bonsai and Koi. One second they're freezing and the next second they're overheating. Lots of stress on all living things. Like those trying to keep them alive....

I keep hearing from my other clubs... Those "stone guys ( and gals)" may be on to something. You still get old too soon, but maybe a little smarter then those trying to keep things alive.

I still bring my stones in, in the winter time, but leave them outside spring,summer, and fall and water them
along with the bonsai. Anyone else doing anything different?

Here is an Url to the topic of stones on an NHK program called japanology....

I think it's interesting to watch thru, but if you want to get to the exact answer to your question, advance the
coverage to 18 minutes and 24 seconds and it will directly answer your question.
