And Stuff.

Well we've been pretty focused so far on just the bonsai side of things here.. but the name of this blog is bonsai and stuff. So lets check out that end of the spectrum!

Not only do we really love bonsai, but we also really love fixed gear bikes. Alot. Probably an unhealthy amount.
so check this so fly shit out. It's only a clip but I'm thoroughly looking forward to the material that the title indicates by saying its a trial. Find more and some awesome gear on citygrounds.com. They've got some great stuff.


Oh, and to continue the tradition:

This here's a boxwood bonsai that is in the process of being wired correctly. Wiring is a very common practice, but is purely for artistic purposes.

enjoy your saturday night!

Bonzai of the day / Juniper Bonsai tips!!

Oh hey there!

Well due to popular demand, I've compiled some of what I think are the best tips for caring for Juniper Bonsai
(Which is what I have). My most recent bonsai project has been a Juniper because they are great indoor or outdoor bonsais and quite frankly I think they look the coolest. Apparently they're kinda hard to take care of too, so if you're interested in starting a bonsai project or just looking for some extra tips, here you go!

..but first, check out this super rad juniper!


- Never expose to freezing temperatures. Keep in a basement or garage during the winter season if the elements are too harsh and try to keep its temperature around a constant 40* F.
-Juniper thrive with plenty of fresh air and sunlight, so keep it outside or in a well ventilated sunny area. I personally have it in a dorm room and this will be its first year here so we'll see how it goes.
-The saying, "if some is good, more is better" cannot be applied in reference to watering your bonsai. Beginners have the tendency to over-water their bonsai plants. Over-watering causes Bonsai roots to rot. You should water your bonsai when the soil is nearly dry--but not completely dried out.
-Feed your bonsai with organic fertilizer every 2 weeks in the growing season and every 3 to 4 in the off season.

Take care guys! Thanks for all the continued support!! : D
