Experience in choosing pots for Bonsai

Planting pots honor the beauty of a work of bonsai at the same time express the level of “playing profession”. AgriMark collects the basic knowledge and experience of artisans when discussing pots for Bonsai. Please refer to:

The basic principles:
– Based on enamel color :: Potted enamel is considered as the background color to highlight the color of flowers and fruits for flower plants, main fruit, or leaf color for play plants. Do not use enamel-colored pots of flowers or fruits.

– For white and yellow flowers: Use purple and brown pots

– For red and purple flowers: use pots of white, turquoise, and frozen enamel. The same goes for the skin color of the leaves.

– Based on the height of the tree trunk: For low trees, use high pots, especially hypotenuse plants. Tall plants use low pots. The general trend for artistic ornamental plants is to use a thin tank or tank with a minimum amount of soil that is sufficient to sustain the plant’s life. Gradually limit pots that are too deep, both heavy and not beautiful. To perform planting on ang or thin tank, first need to plant plants in deep pots for the plentiful roots of shrimp. After each soil change, we cut off the soil at the bottom of the heap to make the pot more shallow, do a few times like that, when the shrimp roots are plentiful and spread evenly on a thin surface, we can plant. on thin pots as required.

Take care not to let the large tips of the roots are higher than the pot walls because after the soil is gone, the ends will be inert and the roots will remove the roots. Planting on thin pots is very beautiful but must be replaced annually, the soil needs to be mixed with enough nutrients for the plant to grow and flower results, through foreign ornamental plants, we can see that the tree has a very large root set but it can. Planted on a thin tank with very little land, yet the flowers are still blooming brilliantly, looking so attractive.

Place to place pots

Where to place pots, special attention should be paid to light conditions, ventilation, not when fresh and to pay attention to night mist if any.

Leaf light is indispensable for plants to conduct photosynthesis. Depending on different species of plants that require different light, plants in pots need to have at least 5 hours of light or more, preferably mild morning light, avoiding harsh sunlight at noon, every week. shading direction.

In addition to light, it is necessary to have good ventilation, pay attention to changes in temperature of seasons, keep plants in need of light all day and half a day. The physiological limit of the plant will reduce the photosynthetic effect, affect the ability of the roots to absorb food, the leaves may wither. If the light is not enough to lead the tree will grow taller, weak vitality.

In general, the tree shelf is about 60cm high, easy to take care of and manage, and also convenient for viewing and enjoying; should not be placed directly on the ground to avoid ants, worms through the hole in the pot and avoid the roots of the tree from entering the pot hole into the ground, making the root muscles decrease, the canopy will grow messy; Also should not be placed directly on the cement roof in the summer, the plants grow weakly.

The artist’s experience on the relationship between the potted style and the plant shape
For classic pots, ie round, square, rectangular, oval pots .. made of terracotta with simple designs, it is very clear which plant shape to plant in which pot. As follows.

The pot is very high
The pots are very tall and narrow, giving the image of a steep mountain slope. It is suitable for fallen trees (hypotenuse). The picture below is a tree of Uncle Thang “fallen”. Although this pot is a bit stylized, there are many motifs on the pot, but I like to take as an example because it has something very Vietnamese, rustic but delicate.

Steamed pots
The slightly tapered pots below evoke the image of a gently sloping mountain slope. This pot type is suitable for semi-hypotenic plants, flying plants, and humane trees.

Thin pots
Skewers and upright plants are planted in thin pots and wide pot surfaces. This type of pot evokes an image of a spacious plain. Plants in thin pots will feel very firm and peaceful.
