Yeah, the tree is still alive, but the bleached looking parts he applied it
to are already dead.

Author pacovl46 ( ago)
I think it looks great! Also, if you keep your trees outside the sun will
weather the parts where the lime sulfur has been applied and it will begin
to look more natural again.

Can anyone tell me what colour ink is best?

Author BackSeatHump ( ago)
You might want to write it down beforehand and rehearse what it is you want
to say, before you switch on the camera, Tom.

Lime sulfur leaves the subject looking horrible. It makes it look fake. Why
do people keep using it? At least he puts ink in the mixture to wash out
the white.

As a beginner I appreciate the simple focus on one aspect of Bonsai covered
in good detail, very helpful. Kudos

Great Video! I have been working with and creating bonsai for about 2.5 to
3 years now. I am at the point where I need to work with dead wood. This
video couldn't have come at a better time. I have a Barberry bonsai that
needs lime sulfur and I really did not know much about it until now. Thanks
you for your knowledge.
