Right here’s a pet peeve. And I’ll begin with “there are a lot of methods to pores and skin a cat” however there are methods, and higher methods. See the outlet above? A drain gap in a bonsai pot. We cowl these with display so the bonsai soil we use (use what you want and what works for you) doesn’t fall out the underside.
I’m repotting a shopper’s tree. I discover this because the drain gap display. It’s good materials, precise bonsai display, however wouldn’t it harm you to chop it just a little larger? It’s not even a penny’a value so as to add an additional half inch to it.
And the wire holding it? It doesn’t even bend across the ground wall of the pot.
What’s that gonna maintain?
I’ve been utilizing galvanized metal. It’s robust, lasts for years, and drains effectively.
And I don’t skimp.
And the wire I exploit to carry it in: it’s heavy gauge, and bent in order to carry the display in place.
The loops maintain the display and there’s sufficient beneath to carry it to the pot. (Ignore the calcium buildup, it’s from south Florida, the place the water is difficult as a politicians coronary heart.
See that? It ain’t shifting.
And whereas I’m at it, tie down wire needs to be heavy too. No less than 2mm, that is 2.5.
I can decide the tree up by the trunk, with no worries that the tree will probably be broken (might, however not normally….effectively, typically. Do as I say, not as I do…).
Right here’s the tree. Portulacaria afra. It’s not going anyplace.
