Hello everyone.
I sow tamaring seed and after wait of a month, it germinate. Actually i sow it to make it bonsai. It is my first try.

take a look here

Now it is just 5 inch long. I know i have to wait for 2to3 years. I need your advice. What should i do now ? Should i re pot it to a big pot or small pot is ok ? What type of fertilizer should i use for tamarind ? Actually i use sand and soil mix , 1:1, as seed starter mix. When it germinate i use vermicompost. How to care it ? Any other special thing about it.

Please direct me , and tell me freely if i did sumthng wrong.

Each opinion is valuable.

Thanx.

Hi Amit,

You will have to transplant it soon to a bigger pot atleast 12 inches deep. You need to let the seedling grow into a plant and then a tree.

You will not be able to make it into a bonsai until its stem/trunk will atleast be a inch in diameter.

 

This will take you years but then thats the beauty of it. If you want to  to rush things up – go to your local nursery, get a healthy sapling that already looks like a tree, prune the roots and the branches the way you desire and that way you will be ahead and you would have saved a few years.

I have had a tamarind tree which I grew from seed. It is now about 8"tall and the stem is quite thick. Once a year I trim the roots and replant it. I know like the rest of you I will have to wait to see it fruit, but I'm happy to wait. sorry I cant post a pic. I'm technologically challenged Frown

Hi Amit,

Let your small seedling grow in a fertile soil with fast water drainage most important. Try not to repot tooo often.

My opinion is to repot only if the plant roots has grown out of the bottom hole.  

Maybe, you could show us a photo of your plant.

 

Thanks,
