One year Alnus Seed.

Post  Gabriel on Mon Nov 02, 2009 1:21 am

Hi there.
this alnus has only 1 year since sprouted into a box where I have had planted a few maples seeds.
It amazes me how fast grows.

Pics.

Delightful mini, Gabriel.

That's one in the eye for the "never start from seed" brigade.

As soon as I saw the first picture, I thought: I'd cut it and make a mini. How wonderful when I saw the the next picture. It is very well balanced! Ulmus do grow quickly, and that is why I have quite a few growing in my flower beds as future bonsai.

Gabriel, did you do anything to get that great little bend in the trunk, or was it natural? Thanks for posting!

Kev, Cool Very Happy

Carolee.
This little Alder grows naturaliy, I never do nothing to it.
I think the "secret" to have Alnus like this is a good idea to grow them into very big pot or woodbox for its first 2 years in coarse river sand.

Thx & regards

Do you know which species of Alnus (alder) it is? Temperate alders are also occasionally used for bonsai. I hope you will be able to reduce the leaves so they are more in scale.

Hey Iris.
I think is s an Alnus "glutinosa", but I'm not very sure. Anyway I defoliate them 1 or 2 times in summer becuse in optimas conditions, they grow very, very, very rapid.

I'm curious how much you will be able to reduce the leaf size. The alder has a pretty large leaf.

Alnus glutinosa and Alnus cordata leaf size reduces well with regular defoliation.

Hey athrun, Gracias por la preocupación, todo bien por lo menos por este sector de Chile. estoy a 600 Km del epicentro, así que solo se nos movió la tierra de forma suave.
Por cierto,.. estoy maravillado con tu trabajo sobre los acer. Realmente un lujo y dejas callados a varios de los que andan por ahí..jejeje.

Un abrazo fuerte.

Best Regards

Gabriel
