Bonsai fertilizer
« on: June 08, 2010, 05:35:10 PM »
Hey guys,

I have been trying to suss out what the best fertilizer is for my new Bonsai and there seems to be a lot of duff info on the net.

I did however find a cool page (guide) on bonsai tree fertilizer.

They suggest Osmocote with an NKL of 20-20-20.

Just wanted to help any Bonsai enthusiasts!

Cheers :P

While the link you have posted does refer to organic fertiliser options, it still bases its assessment on the limited concept of comparing quantities of three elements (N, P & K). There is more to soil fertility than simply measuring NPK.

I do not grow plants bonsai style, but I am I am sure that even those dear little stunted ones would benefit from organic nutrition as much as any other plant does.

The basis of organic soil fertility is that the interaction of microorganisms with organic matter and natural minerals provides a range of complex nutrients which ensures that plants are well fed and healthy..Of couse N, P and K need to be present, but that is only a small part of the larger picture.

My quaking aspen rarely turn gold like they do out west.  What kind of fertilizer would help this?  They get more rainfall than Colorado and are in full sun.
