I started a new hobby this year. :o) Bonsai from seed

posted on 24th of december, 2014

(First; sorry for my english ;o) )

This year i started a new hobby.
Creating my own bonsai-trees from seed! :o)

One of my little Plants is accepted in Dreamstime. Maybe next year i have luck and more pictures of it`s growing and bonsai training will be accepted here. :o)

It tooks only 5 Days to get this little Plant from seed!
It is a Bolusanthus speciosus (Elephant Wood)


First, i have to do, is to cut the tap-root, because as a bonsai it has to grow in a small flower pot and has not much place for a tap-root. So it must make many little roots.
I was a little bit afraid to cut the root, but the Plant has it`s seed leaf, which gives it all important plant nutrient to grow. So it should work... (hopefully *g* Elsewise i have a nice picture for dreamstime *g*)...
