Bonsai Training Video. FALL MAINTENANCE: Japanese Black Pine
This DVD features Boon Manakitivipart teaching the techniques of Fall Maintenance on two Japanese Black Pines. The process is key to creating professional, show-quality bonsai. Using the techniques demonstrated here, you can learn how to control next season’s growth. Fall maintenance includes needle-pulling, bud-thinning, and pruning. These techniques allow sunlight and air into a tree’s interior, promoting new growth and stimulating back-budding. Boon demonstrates these methods on this two-chapter DVD. Part I, Mature Tree. This chapter condenses four hours of Boon’s work on a mature show tree. He demonstrates how to balance the tree’s energy by reducing needles and buds in the strong areas (the top) and redistributing that energy to the weaker areas (bottom and interior). Part II, Refined Tree. In this chapter, Boon goes into greater detail about the benefits of fall maintenance. Using a 50-year-old bonsai, he teaches how to keep a tree compact and hardy. He also shows the results of early summer decandling and teaches how to use needle-pulling and bud-thinning to maintain balance. By their very nature, Japanese Black Pines want to grow large. The techniques shown on this DVD provide the most effective ways to keep your tree small.
