Basal Chitons

Post  jupitermininginc on Sun Nov 27, 2011 6:22 pm

Seem to recall Gingkos have these suckering shoots called basal chitons. Just in case one was to be eaten by a dinosaur, presumably. Very Happy

I don't know the variety of Ginko I have. They did all come from the same place. So I think I am
going to clump some of them together. We'll see what happens.

There is a wonderful article on ginkgo group bonsai with progression fotos at the follow site http://swindon-bonsai.co.uk/2011/01/05/introduction-to-ginkgo%E2%80%99s-as-bonsai/ . The Spring shot from above the group is very interesting. There is also a pic of a drastic pruning and the subsequent new growth.

Thanks Howard, that's interesting.

I like the forst approach to developing ginkgos. God knows, as young trees they look like Charlie Brown Christmas trees so a forest planting is a good way to grow, develop, and enjoy them. That was my thinking anyway, we'll see.

Thought i would post a little update on my root cuttings. Of the 2 large chunks I scored, I kept one whole & planted upside down as I have seen done before, the other was split into 3 pieces. The upside down one is attached & has shot away nicely with 3 well placed shoots, of the other 3, 2 rotted out but the third has sent up a single strong shoot. I have a few decades of growing to take it where I want but am most excited by the little upside down one.

That's interesting Matt. It never occurred to me tp plant them upside-down. I wonder what will happen, please keep us posted.

Russell, 40 years ago in Japan I remember seeing an entire poly house full of the chichi planted upside down. This was in Chiba Prefecture at a large bonsai nursery.

Really? I wonder what became of them. As often as you've been back have you seen anything like them?

I woder if they were just for novelty's sake, like the Japanese version of ginseng ficus or lucky bamboo.

Hi all,

I would like to know from your experience, what are the main steps to propagate ginkgos from hardwood cuttings. Best time of the year....
