A bougainvillea stick

Post  my nellie on Tue Apr 24, 2012 7:50 pm

This bougainvillea was collected from the garden last year in February.

I know I should have cut lower but....

Then you can see its growth in October 2011


As it did not sprout lower on the trunk but at the tip of the stick, I thought I could thread-graft new branches from the existing

The grafts were made early last March and by now they have taken and new leaves are emerging on them.

So, this is one of my sticks

haha, exacly Rob, no - is has a wiggly bit styled into the top so not a SIP - it probably was one - cut the top off and all the side branches then it can come back to this thread with pride Very Happy

cheers Marcus - soon we'll be able to seperate stumps in pots from true sticks - we need to get the definitions clear I feel to save mis-posting Twisted Evil

If you want to move up a level and be an owner of a real SIP you have to be able to learn how to recognise the right material . If you start out with rubbish material that your putting up before your never going to achieve a good SIP. You need to search the web for ideas and then go out and see if you can find something a bit more suitable.If you want i'll take your unsuitable material and give you a few SIP so you can get a start.

This stick Ulmus Parvifolia Geyaki is 43 cm. long. And is a cutting from my little old " Nire Geyaki"..
It may in the future become a kaskade. What is not shown on the photo is the nice elegant way the roots come go dawn in the soil.



This Acer Palmatum used to be a pottet tree gone wrong...A fungus killed the one side....I have spend some years with making it shoot roots dawn the trunk, to prepare it, to be a raft....after this was done, did I cut away the old branches, as they were "windswept", and would make it dificult to style the tree in the future.
Now is the group of sticks ready for the 3th. season...the innerrim of the pot is 36 cm long.
As soon as the tree hits middsummer, will I place it in a bigger pot...last year was it potbound in this pot, but have done nothing yet.
Photos a little later...problems with pc.

Kind regards Yvonne

Here's a Green Isle stump of mine. Sure, it's not anywhere near bonsai pot ready, but it is a stick in a pot Wink

Started out at 6 feet with no lower branches. So naturally, I chopped it down to a foot with no branches and it backbud.

After the chop:

Several of the trees in the thread don't count as SIPs in my opinion and Ferdie's is clearly one of them.

My understanding of the rather unkind term is when someone (not always a beginner either) places a pencil-thin twig - often ramrod straight, with few good features, with little or no (or worse, the wrong) styling - into a pot and calls it a finished bonsai.

And yup, I have formed this opinion precisely because I did this affraid in my first year or so in bonsai, until I visited some proper shows and saw what I could and should be doing or aiming at. I still wake up in a cold sweat in the night after a flashback to when a tray of 4inch high sycamore seedlings with nothing on them other than their first set of leaves won the prize for best group planting in a show that should have known better.
