watering - proper way?

Post  remist17 on Wed Sep 21, 2011 7:31 pm

I have been told several ways to water my bonsai and pre bonsai material.

One method is using a water can and letting the waterrun out of the bottom. Stopping for a minute and then rewatering until it runs out the bottom.

Second method is taking a bucket and putting the plant/pot in the bucket and filling it with water over the pot and up the trunk. Letting it sit in the water for 10min.

Third one is to water with a water can and let the water run out once..

Any points on this would be great

Hi Remist

You can do that....But please read my reply in the topic "watering and winter".
Othervise will your trees easily drown. The moss makes it easier.

Kind regards Yvonne

Although I use a hose with a water breaker on the end.

Watering Proper Way

The main thing is to water from the top until the water runs out the drain hole. In hot weather you can water twice to make sure the soil is saturated. It doesn't make any significant difference whether you use a hose or a watering can. I think most of us (unless there is a problem with the water supply) use a hose with a watering wand for plain water and a watering can for fertilizer.
