Hi Jonas and Community:
Relatively new to bonsai and charging ahead with many cuttings and seedlings ready to play the long term game. Of course, I’d like to gather info to do it as fast and as well as possible.
I have juniper and Hinoki cuttings rooted and ready for transplant. Pine and Monterey cypress seedlings from last year ready to transplant. I have many species of CA native oak acorns sprouting, Douglas fir seeds and Monterey Cypress seeds in the fridge hopefully soon to come to life.
Does anyone have any thoughts or results on the air pruning type of small nursery pots pertaining to ultimate root development for bonsai nebari and trunk base flare. Any species specific do’s and don’ts?
If not, I have a batch of root pruning type pots and normal nursery pots and have started planting things out in each in an experimental fashion and I’ll be back to you in a couple of years with results.
