4. Small-leaved erection
This plant is rightfully considered not only one of the most spectacular, but also the largest bonsai.
Aerial roots, light bark, bizarrely curving trunk and pubescent leaves give off erection (Ehretia microphylla, synonym - small-leaved carmona, Carmona retusa) in any collection. This bonsai is grown both in winter gardens and in all types of living rooms.
Erection small-leaved is an evergreen tree with a height of 15 to 80 cm requires some effort to contain its size. But karmona has many other advantages. The bark is light, brownish-gray, with very beautiful cuts that emphasize the curvature of the trunk and branches. And the dark leaves of erection, pubescent at the top of the leaf plate with white hairs, seem to be both miniature and massive at the same time.
Karmona blooms, unlike many other trees used for bonsai production, almost all year round. And you can endlessly watch the metamorphosis - from tiny buds to snow-white flowers, and then to green, gradually reddening berries.
The most difficult part of growing karmona is maintaining high humidity. And the requirement of only uniform soil moisture also does not facilitate the growing process. But on the other hand, this tree can be grown and "watered" by immersion in water (directly from the trunk), and it is better to apply fertilizers in this way, immersing the plant in a weak solution.
Eretia feels great indoors, but from May to September it is better to find a place for her in the fresh air. Ventilation of rooms is very important, as is intense lighting.
This type of bonsai needs constant containment. The plant is bulky and tends to regain its natural size. Therefore, the carmona is not so much sheared as it is wrapped with wire for a more aggressive containment. Carmona is very effective not in straight-growing, but in a hanging "mountain" form and a cascade.
Carmona can winter not only in the cool. Acceptable air temperature values are from 12 to 22 degrees. So this is one of the few bonsai that do well indoors all year round.
