It is said that camellias are not easy to reproduce. Have you tried this method? Teach you how to turn old branches into new ones. The main method is to rejuvenate the old branches through the grafting method of old branches. This can also dwarf the branches and make them into bonsai shapes. .
Camellia stump dwarf shape
The dwarfing of old camellia branches needs to be done by pruning. When pruning, pay attention to the growth direction of the branch buds, let the inner buds grow upward, and the outer buds grow downward, and then adjust, prune and retain buds according to the tree shape. Leave at least about 3 cm of space above the bud opening to prevent damage to the branch and bud due to pruning. When stereotyped pruning, for some outward-growing lateral buds, adopt the method of upper pruning, which will make the plant more compact, inhibit the upward growth of branches, accelerate the lignification of branches, and play a dwarfing role to a certain extent. Camellia stump dwarf trees generally have more weeping types.
Camellia old pile bonsai management
The camellia bonsai that has formed a shape is also relatively broad in terms of maintenance and management. You only need to pay attention to the daily maintenance of water and fertilizer management. If you want the flowers to bloom better, add some organic nutrient solution when watering, so as to make the camellia bonsai look like The viewing value is higher. In addition, the difference between bonsai and potted maintenance is that bonsai needs to be pruned frequently to maintain a good-looking shape, while potted plants do not need to be pruned frequently.
Camellia bonsai maintenance method
The first point is the problem of light. Camellia likes light, and the maintenance location is generally the best place where the balcony faces the sun, especially during the flowering period. Because camellia has a longer flowering period and an earlier opening time, sufficient light can make it bloom earlier and more brilliantly.
The second point is the problem of watering. Camellia likes water, and the water demand during the growth period is still relatively large. When watering, add some “nutrients” and a little acidic organic nutrient solution can play a role in promoting flowering.
The third point is the problem of fertilization. When fertilizing camellias, nitrogen and phosphorus fertilizers are in great demand. Therefore, these two kinds of fertilizers can be applied more during the growth period, and the effect is to promote the differentiation of flower buds and the growth of flower buds.
Alright, just pay attention to these three items in the daily management of potted camellias. The above is the relevant knowledge about the dwarfing of old camellia branches, the dwarfing method of camellia branches and the related technical points of bonsai modeling. If you also want to grow several pots of camellia bonsai, you can refer to the above methods.
