Hi Josh and all, I noticed that lawn fertilisers have only nitrogen and potassium in them, no phosphorus. Is it any good for bonsai in development? Cheers, Sergy

Hi Josh and all, I picked up a small cute plant from the road side which appears to be a common juniper, picture attached. Is it indeed? I planted it in the mix of the native soil where it grew (common Australian brown-red clay) with some coarse sand and pumice/seramis (all 2-3 mm sized). What can and should I do to improve its chance to survive? Do I change the soil mix to organic for better development? But I'm afraid it's not used to such rich soil and is likely to overstress by sudden change. cheers

Hi Josh, When slip-potting and there are circular roots, do you suggest trimming them or not touching at all? Thanks, Sergy

Hi Josh and others, I wonder if anyone have come across Australia native Illawarra Flame tree (Brachychiton acerifolius, not to confuse with Delonix regia) bonsai? I have searched the net but not found a single example. I love its straight greenish trunk and I am growing a couple ~ half yo, from seeds I picked up from under the trees. It keeps growing quickly straight up and when I pruned the very tops to encourage branching, both seedlings got stunned for a month before continuing straight up from topmost lateral buds. A photo attached. My intention is to have it only 25-30cm tall, it's already ~45cm. How do I make it to form branches? Because I haven't found any bonsai examples of such a beautiful tree, I am concerned it may not be turned into bonsai. Would appreciate comments if anyone knows about Flame tree bonsai. Cheers
