Casuarina with good wabi-sabi

Post  cosmos on Wed Aug 04, 2010 12:58 pm

Hi Pady
very beautiful trees with intriguing wabi-sabi aesthetics, especially the first tree. They both have awesome trunk movement and texture. The first tree looks more refined. What treatment do you give to the deadwood? In other forums I have come across the argument that deadwood on casuarina rots very easily. What is you opinion? Thanks for sharing.

Casuarina(agoho) before and after workshop

Post  Ka Pabling on Wed Aug 04, 2010 4:11 pm

Hi Cosmos
The deadwood in these casuarinas are almost the same since I planted them in 2006, I just clean it with brush and apply lime sulphur every three months. It seems that the deadwood are well preserved.

Hi Jose,
We have just started working on my casuarinas this morning, they seem to be healthy to withstand the pressures of the workshop. I will try to post the others which we are going to work on this week end.
Cheers

Here are some usefull tips inyamadori casuarinas.

Re: Casuarina Equisetifolia (Cemara Udang or Mu Ma Huang)

.Hi padychitan
Thanks for your reply. I tried to collect two yamadori but failed. I left the soil from the site I picked up the tree since I have read on Bonsai Focus and other books, that the roots of casuarina has a symbiotic relationship with a fungus and also have minute root nodules with bacteria that change atmospheric nitrogen into usuable nitrates. I thought that making a new mix for the yamadori would upset such associations and what you are telling me i.e. using river sand alone, would not be conducive to craeting such mutalisms. Can you pl elaborate on how you carry out your yamadori on such trees.

Thanks

.Hi Cosmos

I think that what you are telling about a "symbiotic relationship with a fungus and minute root nodules with bacteria etc." does not only apply to casuarinas but to all yamadori. It is a good practice to bring a portion of the soil where you dig the yamadori and mix it to your potting medium so the useful bacteria present in that soil could multiply in the new medium.The use of humic acid can help this usefull bacteria multiply.

I use volcanic cynder and course river sand as medium for my casuarinas for good draining. Casuarinas hate to be waterlogged.It has been our experience to leave some branchlets of collected casuarinas for better survival. Those that are totaly defoliated usualy dont suirvive.

Hi John,
Sorry for my late reply, my internet provider had a problem with their tower so I was off the net for more than one week.

Digging of a casuarina yamadori is no different than digging any other yamadori, Its the rule of thumb that when digging yamadori, you should try to get as much roots as you can, try to preserve the moisture and plant it in a training pot the soonest you can.
