Grow and clip - Gmelina

Post  Khaimraj Seepersad on Fri Apr 07, 2017 11:41 pm

Hello Peoples,

Just finished defoliating, and some pruning.

First tree is around 30 ish from a cutting.

Second is about 25 ish or so, also a cutting and Nick counted as he defoliated --------- 2000 plus leaves.

Feel free to yay or hay as comments go.

Khaimraj,

Very nice! Can you show some with foliage?

I've gotten one like you recommended but I'm yet to set some cuttings.....

Will let you know how it goes.

To say -

Thank you Milly,
Thank you Richard.

Nigel, just to repeat, in leaf images in 3 weeks.

I shall also be checking on how many fine branchlets I can preserve on this shrub.
Until.

Really beautiful trees!

I have a question - you have really nice movement on all your branches. Is this all from clip and grow, or do you wire too? I have a small shohin Parrot's Beak, and wired it for the first time, but I'm wondering if that's a bad idea. Figured I'd ask an expert. Wink

Thanks!

Jaime,

only grow and clip. It's a hedging material, and responds with shoots anywhere.
Wire might leave marks, that may take a long time to disappear.
Be ware large wounds, they don't normally heal.

The shrub has an adaptation, when the wood is damaged, the shrub survives by suckering and just growing
another plant.
Not sure you would want that as a Bonsai --------- lifespan maybe a short 50 years.

When old enough, even on mame' [ 6 inch tall - 15 cm ] the bark cracks and adds great character.
No more Trident maple / Zonal envy.

No expert, just trying.

Cuttings root easily, I would suggest you grow 10 more and have enough to experiment other than the
mother plant.

Defoliation once a year is usually sufficient for smaller leaves and tidying work.

Breck -------- thank you for looking.
Laters.

Back in leaf shots in about 2 weeks stay tuned.

So very good!
The first one is much much better, though! Fabulous!

Did Nick ask to be paid by leaf for doing the defoliation, I wonder! Very Happy
