Plantings get new lease on life

Wow, plantings hasn’t been updated in ages!! To bring the blog for these guys up to speed, out of the three plantings, two survived and went into little pots to continue to grow into new bonsais. After a year of healthy growth, they both needed a bit of TLC, as they had lost some of their leaves in the recent hot weather and they were also planted in not very good soil….

They have started to re-gain their leaves, but I decided they needed a re-pot to further stimulate new growth…..So I emptied out the old soil and put in new bonsai soil. I have added moss to one and small pebbles that I had on hand for the other.
These guys are going to be back bigger and better with lots of leaves, and hopefully some more branches so I can begin to shape them!
