A to Z of Bonsai Terms

Welcome to the A to Z of Bonsai.

We are compiling a worldwide A to Z of Bonsai database. The A to Z is written collaboratively by the people who use it and we would like to encourage anyone reading this page to contribute to what has become the worlds greatest encyclopedia of bonsai terms. Entries when they are made will be added to an editable list which will be checked prior to publication. Photos and images of the bonsai term can be added and links made to relevant web pages. So if you would like to help then just click the "Add Your Own Term" button.

Earth Layering

 - (Procedure)  
Entry for Bonsai Earth Layering Procedure   WWW Link  Update this bonsai term Earth Layering Procedure
bonsai_ground_layering_01.png image Earth LAYERING - This propogation technique involves removing a small section of BARK from a low growing branch and anchoring it to the ground so that ROOTS will sprout from the exposed area.

When this happens the branch can be cut away from the main tree and allowed to grow as an independent plant.

This is the propogation "method of choice" for sprawling plants like low rhododendron and creeping juniper.

EELWORMS - These are worms which inhibit growth by attacking plant ROOTS

There are several types :  CYST EELWORMs : which pierce the roots creating GALLS which protect them.  ECTOPARASITIC EELWORMs : these may carry viral deseases resulting in yellowing of foliage from the base up.  Root-lesion eeelworms : these build nests which cause canker in the roots causing yellowing of foliage and possible fungal development.

Treatment requires removal of yellowing LEAVES and spraying of remaining foliage with a PARATHION based wash, plus mixing NEMATICIDES with the soil which should be prevented from excess wetness.
