Campeche "Bloodwood"

Post  Billy M. Rhodes on Fri Jul 08, 2011 6:02 pm

I attended a Campeche workshop at the BSF Convention on June 10, 2011 with Erick Wigert, we wired the tree. Today I took the wire off because it was beginning to cut, after only four weeks

My post was more about how fast the wire began to cut. The tree is just in training. But, I took two pictures, one of the entire tree and one of the wire marks, I took off the wire and rewired the branches. But, the wire was only on for four weeks before it began to cut.

It is a tropical maybe native to Southern Mexico, there is a Campeche State. The wood when fresh cut is red and can be used to make dye. It has thorns. It is fast growing.
That was my point in posting, in four weeks the wire was beginning to mark the branches. This tree and the others at our convention probably came from Puerto Rico. It has compound leaves with small leaflets.

you know, I keep seeing these things here and there and I've been impressed by the trunks they seem to produce, as well as the somewhat reasonable price, on average, even for a good sized pre- bonsai. I suppose up my way I would have to keep this as an indoor tropical over the winter right? or do they need a dormancy?

These are very tropical and will need full winter protection. I don't think they need a dormant period. How much of one will they get in Puerto Rico. I think we are beginning to see a lot because they root fast from large cuttings. I wired mine again a few weeks ago and put it in the greenhouse. I must remember to check the wire on my next warm day. OH, that might be tomorrow, 85 F.

Hi Billy and thank you for posting. if you do not mind, how much did you pay for that tree?
Here is one of mine that i sold. They are one of the most enjoyable species i have ever worked. I think for a beginner they are awesome.
