Existing Bonsai A To Z Entry for Lime Sulphur


Lime Sulphur

 - (Treatments)
Lime Sulphur - Bonsai Treatments Bonsai Care

Lime sulphur (jin whitener) is used to create a natural oxidized white colour on bonsai deadwood. It also prevents decay.

Dampen the deadwood with water prior to application with a small brush and allow to dry thorougly. The initial colouring will be yellow but this will fade to white as the liquid dries.

Some enthusiast mix a colouring agent with the Lime Sulphur before application to give a darker effect. In some cases the tree deadwood itself is painted with the colouring agent before application of the lime sulphur.
