My second tree!

Post  briddell on Mon Aug 01, 2011 6:37 pm

Greetings IBC!
My grandfather has been working in Mississippi lately and apparently had a gift for me. He bought it about a month ago and it turned out to be a bonsai. Sadly, it is the same kind of tree that my first is too... a Fukien Tea Tree. It came with some moss on it, mostly dead, and some rocks on the top of the soil. It is in a plastic training pot, or at least that is what I think it is? Will post pictures later Smile

If the rocks seem to be glued on, get a screwdriver and pry them off the top of the soil. Cover the resulting void with bonsai (or, in a pinch potting) soil. Water carefully and don't kep the soil wet or soggy.
