Rose Cuttings

I have 3 mini roses acquired from Jose over in Tenerife . At the weekend I decided to take a few cutting to increase my stock. I took a cutting about a week ago and popped it into the humidity layer I put some of my accents on and this was the result. I guest it worked.



I took cuttings from all three roses and potted them into a mix of fine cat litter and fine pumice. Well see how it goes. The parent rose in this kusamono planting is very vigorous as you can see from the roots.



Even got some super mini Rose cuttings 🙂

Subtle Change

Check out this post over on Centro Bonsai Tenerife, I’m sure Jose won’t mind me borrowing the image to use as a link 🙂

I really like this one. Check out the changes on the before image on the original post, subtle but so important.


Hot Hostas

Well they will be warmer in their new home with Jose in Tenerife 🙂

Accents – New Arrivals

I’m exchanging a few accents with Jose at Centro Bonsai Tenerife . I love this aspect of the bonsai community 🙂

Jose’s parcel arrived today with 14 new plants for my collection. A few will need a little extra protection in out Irish climate but most should be fine. I’ll be sending Jose a selection of my hostas once leaves start to drop.

Three mini roses the the mix.

I was able to split a few as well.
