By chance while cleaning I found some more juniper seeds I had put aside. After looking online it turns out that these are very difficult to start from the seed. They need several months of cold and even under optimal conditions very few will grow. I planted them anyways after cutting little notches into them.
I have a yuca cane in a large pot where I just toss random fruit seeds. Bell peppers grow by the dozen but nothing else seems to sprout. For a while now a small tree has been growing, about 6” high. I assumed it was a cherry tree. Cherry’s make very good beginner bonsai so I decided to transplant it only to find it growing out of a Lychee pit. A quick google search (maybe it was Bing, google is shit lately) told me these are rather difficult trees that are not fit for bonsai.
Oh well, I’ll just let it grow as a full sized tree stuck in a small pot, assuming it can do so considering it has 0% of its direct sunlight needs. 2 years ago
I had collected several dozen different tree seeds over a year. Notably, seeds from the junipers that had just been cut down after having stood infront of my parents house for 20 years. Junipers make good bonsai trees.
Unfortunately, after having been fine for a year, the whole container went moldy and I tossed out all the seeds. 2 years ago
I have been stratifying some of the remaining seeds in the fridge (not the right time of year, I know, but I got excited) and will be trying this again. They’ve been in there for 3 or 4 months now and I think it’s time to take them out and get them germinating. Hopefully the seeds aren’t too old : S 2 years ago
All my bonsai trees are at home in England, unattended (not in a bonsai way, anyway), so I may have to start all over again. I feel like this is something I’d enjoy once we’re more settled. Perhaps when we have a house. 2 years ago
