Peat

 - (Growing Medium)  
Entry for Bonsai Peat Growing Medium   WWW Link  Update this bonsai term Peat Growing Medium
bonsai_peat_02.jpg image PEAT - Peat is made up of partially decayed plant material, usually in wet areas. It is composed mainly of wetland vegetation: principally bog plants including mosses, sedges and shrubs and has been used extensively as a GROWING MEDIUM/soil improver for many years.

The commercial extraction of peat at existing rates is considered by some people to be environmentally unsustainable as it removes peat at a much faster rate than it accumulates leading to the irreversible destruction of peatlands. This premise however has been challenged by a number of sudies. Read More.

Many viable peat alternatives exist which are either completely peat-free or of reduced peat content. However many plants have evolved to grow in a peat environment e.g. AZAlea (Rhododendron) and growers find that growing seeds or CUTTINGs in peat is a necessity.

Peat is often used as a constituent part of a BONSAI>BONSAI soil mix where an organic component is desired.

JING(CHINESE)>PENJING (CHINESE) - Penjing is a Chinese term which means roughly the same as BONSAI>BONSAI (plant in a container). Penjing appears to cover a wide range of styles which developed in China 1,500-2,000 years ago.

During the Chin dynasty (221-206 BC) China and Japan started to make social and spiritual contact when Buddhism was introduced into both countries. It appears that many Buddhist priests encouraged the ceremonial use of potted plants as part of religious rituals. The precision and attention to detail that applied to the art form was then developed and improved by Japanese practioners.
