On rocky terrain, trees are forced to look for nutrient wealthy soil with their roots, which can frequently be identified in cracks and holes. The roots are unprotected just before they attain the ground so they need to defend themselves in the sun: a unique bark grows about them. With Bonsai the roots develop more than a rock into the pot, so caring for this tree is not truly diverse from caring for any other bonsai style. You'll find Juniper Bonsai are appropriate for this style, often even tropicals just like the Ficus Bonsai at the same time.
Growing on a rock Bonsai style (Seki-joju)

Benefits of Sekijoju


Are that not merely are you currently displaying a Bonsai but in addition an image of a landscape. The roots flowing down all through the rock give an impression of age and struggle. Bonsai that appear as if they may be taken correctly out of their organic landscape and place into a pot are a few of the most attractive pictures, and Sekikoku permits us to convey that image.

Disadvantage of Sekijoju


Will be the capacity to seek out a rock that genuinely matches the image you're wanting to convey. A lot of instances men and women select rocks which might be far as well modest for the final image they may be producing. I've observed several trees that the roots have nearly totally engulfed the rock and it appears just a little strange. The important is usually to choose a rock a lot bigger than you definitely would truly feel, enabling the tree to develop into the image more than time. Don't forget we're considering 10-20 years down the line with our bonsai.
