This is one of about 20 cuttings I grew about 16 or so years ago. They started of life as twigs with 3 leaves. When they were lifted they had only a few roots and they were quite thick, only a few fine roots.

Grown for 1 to 2 years to re-establish the fine roots around the trunk.

Stage 2 developing the lower 1st and 2nd branches, using a large flat plastic pot saucer and coarse soil. Crushed sifted brick and home made compost.

When I lift these trees in 2 or 3 years, I will still have a shallow root system.
Sageretia takes forever to trunk thicken.

Unpruned and in a pot to re-establish the core of fine roots -



Pruned and in coarse soil -



Example of a saucer with holes -

Hello Pak,

about 2/3 brick, 1/3 organic [ compost and cocopeat ]

I recently found a cheap high grade UV resistant black plastic, much better than the plastic pot seen above, and will most probably shift over to the black as soon as the tree has bound the soil.

I shall keep updating.

Minor problem, I tried to post to the Topic on the Paper Concrete Pots, to send a diagram and information on how to, the post disappeared.
I will make a second attempt later on in this week.

Khaimraj,

Nice specimen.
Sageretia theezens is a very good species for bonsai, and although I have seen many nice bonsai of this species on the net, I really won't be able to identify this tree if I see physically.

Would be grateful, if you could post some close-ups of the leaves that would help me in my identification.

Regards,
Shaukat
