How to use Tibolar-RS?
Because Tibolar-RS is a totally different nutrient for bonsai and plants than all other fertilizer on the current market, it takes a totally different kind of feeding for your bonsai and plants. Used to the way of feeding we do these days, we need to change it to get the full benefits of Tibolar-RS.
As is claimed before, Tibolar-RS is the best nutrient/fertilizer for your bonsai and plants. People who start using it, see a variety of positive effects that they didn’t notice before with the usual fertilizers.
Because of the large amount of minerals and micronutrients which are beneficial for both the bonsai and the soil we can use Tibolar-RS in a lot of applications.
Tibolar-RS can be used at:
Fertilizing is only ment to feed the bonsai and unfortunately it happens too often that the biotope in the soil will be destroyed.
That’s why we advice: DON’T USE OTHER FERTILIZERS IN COMBINATION WITH TIBOLAR-RS IN THE SAME POT!
Fertilizing with Tibolar-RS is a little different but generally it looks the same. Using Tibolar-RS for fertilizing is done by putting the pellets on or IN the soil. The advice is to place the pellets in a distance of 1.5 cm (0.5 inch).
Starting with Tibolar-RS (NPK4-6-2) in spring and in summer Tibolar-RS (NPK13-6-2). And in autumn again with NPK 4-6-2. Because of the minerals and micronutrient the roots will be prepared for winter.
Normally after a few months we are used to take the residu of the pellets/cakes or other pieces of fertilizer of the top of the soil. NOT with Tibolar-RS. Tibolar-RS has to dissolve entirely into the soil, what will happen in the time after applying.
If Tibolar-RS is pushed into the soil, it takes around three weeks to dissolve, so after three weeks it can be added again.
I was asked how to dissolve the pellets in a shorter period of time so the effects of Tibolar-RS will be seen faster. It is recomended to soak the pellets for half an hour in luke warm water. The pellets will soften and will therefore dissolve faster.
Because everybody knows that fertilizing while repotting wil destroy your roots, fertilizing the tree whyle repotting is something you normally do not do.
But because of the mildness of Tibolar-RS you can safely use it with repotting your bonsai. HOW? On the layer where the tree is being placed, add at every 2 cm from the rimm of the pot one pellet of Tibolar-RS (NPK4-6-2) With this application you can also soak the pellets for faster results.

With the repotting below, I took a Pinus Thunbergii `Kototbuki`from the nursery. It had a rootball from 30 cm wide and 23 cm high. I pruned it back to around 15 wide and 8 cm high. This is a severe cut back for the roots. How it was done and the results you can see below.
Normally we are used to fertilize the air layered tree when it’s separated from the mother tree and totally rooted in the pot with a very mild fertilizer. Tibolar-RS (NPK4-6-2) can be added as soon the first roots apear on the air-layered container or bag. The result will be a fast growth of new roots and a healthy root system. Even when the roots have grown, you can add Tibolar-RS in the air-layering substract. With this application it is the most important thing to add enough water to the air-layering to dissolve the pellets.
