Do you know what is going on in your bonsai pots? This month, Abe Far will discuss the role of water, fertilizer, weathering of minerals and decomposition of organic matter on the pH of the soil. Perhaps the most important property of soil as related to plant nutrition is its pH. The pH exerts a strong effect on the solubility and availability of many nutrient elements. It influences nutrient uptake and root growth, and it controls the presence or activity of many micro-organisms. So come find out what is really happening in your bonsai pots!
For those new to the club, Abe Far is the current President of the Golden State Bonsai Federation, past President of the SDBC, and a lifetime SDBC member. He gives back to the club in numerous ways, and regularly performs bonsai demonstrations that share his wealth of knowledge with club members and the general public.
