I did post a picture on one of my trees. Didnt turn out well. It seems like I am the persons that attract that bite mentioned in the first post :)

Anyway, this is a tree I helped a good friend to pick out this summer. Way out of my paygrade. But I dont really mind as I am more into development by my own than purshasing success. This Maple grown from cutting and in shallow pot since 1975. Needs to be thinned out in the spring in my opinion (but I dont really mind if someone els have other opinion :))

The baskets should be half buried, or at least their bottom should be touching the soil so the microorganisms in the soil can act on the organic pellets.

Thanks for the feedback! I will tell him.

The man we purshased it from is a man that is 80 years plus and have been doing bonsai since the mid 60s. And running his own bonsai Company since mid 90s. I am sure this happened during transport as he wouldn't do such misstake. Anyway there are no baskets since mid september as autum was approaching.

The photo was taken the same day as the purshase by the way.....After transport.

Some people add moss to aid the composting/fermentation/decomposition process. This is what may be the case here.
I do not like the baskets though. I prefer granular fertilizer spread over the whole suface (But I have bird feasting on larvea in the soil twice a year)

Thanks for the comment, really appreciate it. This tree has not that much Moss on it so I am not sure if that is The case here.

I agree on your liking on the baskets. Not a pretty sight. But if it makes good for the tree I could accept it. Myself....I water my trees with koi pond water with a random addition of yellow water. Free fertilizer. So far I am happy with the outcome. But will not exclude Another approach in the future.

I've got rid of all baskets last year.
Biogold pellets directly on the soil OR inside tea bags is my way to go.
It works for my trees.
