Drying Lime Sulphur in the Winter

Post  bonsai monkey on Thu Jan 19, 2012 12:28 pm

I was looking for a tip on how to ensure that Lime Sulphur dries and turns white in the Winter.

I have a tree that I'm hoping to show at the BSA event in March but it needs a little work on the deadwood. What I've found before is that applying Lime Sulphur in colder, damp weather doesn't have the desired effect. Anyone got any "tricks of the trade"?

Many thanks in anticipation,
Regards,
Simon

Monkey, a light painting with vinegar or a heaver application 50:50 vinegar\water will whiten it quickly. Same thing on newly placed copper wire before a show. It will darker the new wire'

Just to be absolutely sure here, do you mean applying the vinegar or vinegar/water solution on top of lime suphur or instead of it?

Bringing it inside then turning a fan on at high speed will also help.
