Bonsai Basics – Caring for Your Amazon’s
One of the most popular bonsai varieties is the Amazonian cherry blossom bonsai tree. Amazonian trees are some of the most beautiful specimens available. These trees come in a wide array of colors and are extremely fragrant. They are prized for their beautiful flowers and leaves. The beauty of this tree is often used as inspiration by many bonsai artists.
There are several types of Amazon bonsai pot, ranging in both quality and price from those made in China and Japan, to those for sale at affordable prices. There are also several types of bonsai trees, but they are usually classified into three groups: “domestic”, “baker style” and “Mold”. The “domestic” bonsai trees are more commonly found at home than at nurseries. These are typically larger pots that are less expensive, as well as smaller ones.
“Baker Style” trees are smaller, hand-cut versions of the larger domestic species. Some of these varieties are the most popular bonsai plants. They are generally small trees, between eight and ten inches in height, with long, tapered branches that are upright. Some varieties have special fruit, like the Amazon Cherry Blossoms, that are prized by bonsai artists.
The third kind of bonsai tree, the “Mold” variety, is the least expensive, but they are not the easiest to care for, nor the most durable. These are the size range of the Amazons, with the exception of the third type, which falls in the reasonable price range. All three of these pots should be made of a combination of ceramic and terracotta, in order to hold the tree firmly in place without sagging, or leaking, due to clogged drains.
There is a wide range of pots that can hold any size tree, and any kind of bonsai plant. But the most common pots used to train bonsai trees are round and conical. This shape is the best for holding the tree upright. Other shapes, such as square or rectangular, do not provide as much support or beauty to the plant. A circular pot will not allow the tree to grow out and make the best bonsai pot for beginners.
The drainage holes on the top and underside of the Amazonian pot are also important if you want to keep your bonsai tree healthy. The Amazonian pot has holes on both sides, but it is important that these holes go all the way to the ground, to allow water to drain naturally. Some bonsai potters have made exceptions and put drainage holes at the top, just below the rim of the pot. This allows the roots to drain below the rim, avoiding root rot.
If you’re going to use plastic plants and soil, it’s a good idea to choose your Amazonian bonsai trees wisely. Pine and cedar tend to be stronger than most Amazonian trees, and will withstand being planted into most types of bonsai plants. However, grapevines and azaleas are better suited to other types of bonsai potting materials, due to their tendency to form a bark coating over the top of the soil, which makes them more resistive to fungal decay. If you opt for grapevines and azaleas, you should check with your local nursery to find out what type of potting media would be best.
Rounding off the article is to remember that you’ll need to care for your new plant in a few different ways. First, remember that Amazonian bonsai trees grow best when they are given ample light. They should always be placed on a table that faces south or west, away from windows or direct sunlight, and if possible, have south or west facing windows during the brightest part of the day. Make sure that the container’s drainage holes are always covered with something damp, as this will allow the water to drain properly. Finally, remember to keep a steady supply of water on hand.
