Not only just feeding the plant/tree and enriching the soil is what Tibolar-RS made for. Also other applications were tested with Tibolar-RS.
Air-layering, a technique that I used to try to produce bonsai. But almost all tryouts failed. I used spaghnum moss, different rooting materials, but nothing realy worked out. Or the tree died when I separated it from the mother tree in time, or the rooting didn’t do well.
Enough said about failures. This year I tried Tibolar-RS on three airlayers. Two I used the rooter pot and another which I didn’t take pictures from, just a black plastic pot.
Hereby the results.
Zelkova Seratta air-layering.
Zelkova Seratta air-layering in pure akadama. When I noticed the first few roots on the 13th of may I applied a few pellets of Tibolar-RS and after one month the rooter pot was totally filled with roots.
One year later…Vibrant radial roots.
Another Zelkova air-layered. This Zelkova was airlayered Japanese style. In the pot. Some netting was made in a circle, filled with akadama and topped of with sphagnum moss. This is the result after one year.
Air Layered Japanese Maple
Also here I only used pure akadama. And Tibolar-RS NPK4-6-2.
Roots are this vibrant that they start growing out off the soil.
6th of april 2015.
Air layered Japanese maple taken out of pot, roots trimmed.
A layer of callus has grown over the place where the tree was separated from the mothertree.
Ideal radial nebari roots are created, size ranges from 2 till 4 mm wide. Tree is potted again. On Tibolar-RS NPK4-6-2. Now in a flatter container so that the roots can start growing horizontally.
To be continued….
