Message from the Bonsai Master
(White Belt, i.e. started learning but only just)

  • Little roots drink the most water (accelerate growth). Big roots with no small roots get trimmed.

  • Find the flow of the tree. Look at the tree to see where the flow is - right to left, or left to right. It will become apparent over time. Tree grows to sun.

  • Balance of the rootage. Gives the tree strength.
Need to talk about taper, but not ready yet. Until next time. Haaaa Bonsaiiiii. (Wax on, wax off...)
