Root Pruning, soil & my JMs
Just wanted to report on some of the JMs I repotted last fall (a year ago) and their progress.
The ones I root pruned and put into one of the recommended soil mixes here, doubled in size. Boom! Big.
The 3 I repotted & pruned in the spring were (a bad idea) hit or miss. My Dissectum Nigrum didn't care, but I lost a Kashima and Hogyoku took a morte. Died. So sad. My Kashima was 7 years old and it just didn't stand for it.
So.... although I didn't get to repot some this fall, I have 7 that MUST be repotted or just plain put in the ground.
I credit this great growth to the soil mix and getting air. My Crispa, a Koto no ito and Red Pygmy (a red Koto no ito) just thrived. Corillium wasn't sure, but did well. There are more, but I'm convinced.
Fall root pruning and a great, oxygen available soil.
Thank you for all your great recommendations.
