TOPIC: Albino branches in Thuja Occidentalis

Albino branches in Thuja Occidentalis 7 years 3 months ago #447

Dear All,

Yesterday when taking the trimmer to our hedge, I noticed that one of the Thuja trees had formed an albino branch. A first to me, as I had never seen this before. Is this common? Is there a way that I could take this branch (It has health yellow-white growth AND green branched) and somehow get it to root? I think it would be amazing to use this material for a bonsai..?

Hi Jelle,

I think it's great material for bonsai, maybe post a picture of it. You can air-layer the branch to get it rooted.

See more information about air-layering: www.bonsaiempire.com/grow/air-layering

I'm curious to see the branch as it is now with deadwood :)

Good luck!

Will get on a ladder when the weather & time of day permits me & snap some shots (The hedge itself is 2.5m tall, and I work way too long days at the mo. Update is comming though!
