TOPIC: NPK???

NPK??? 6 years 9 months ago #1193

Hello,

I have had a read through and found that fertalizers are good for my little bonsai... However I am reading that diffrent NPK levels have diffrent effects on the Bonsai...

Could anyone explain to me what these are and when I should be using them?

So as an example...

What the Nitrogen does for the tree and when to have more Nitrogen?
What the Phrosperous does for the tree and when to have more Phrosperous?
What the Potassium does for the tree and when to have more Potassium?

Many Thanks

James

"For there is hope for a tree,
if it be cut down, that it will sprout again,
and that its shoots will not cease.
Though its root grow old in the earth,
and its stump die in the soil,
yet at the scent...

Nitrogen thickens trunk and promotes leaf growth
Phosphorous helps promote root growth
Potassium helps promote flower growth

Remember tho, too much of anything is bad

Don't have negative thoughts about things you cannot control. Instead, invest your energy in the positive, present moment.

Ok about that some say it is not sutable for bonsai its just because of wrong idea these people who say it is not good for bonsai are the people who misconcept bonsai they think that reducing the nutrients is the main idea of making bonsai witch is wrong.
