Jan Culek shows us how to create a rock Bonsai tree. He actually produces these rocks himself, and plants them with Juniper trees (Itoigawa). This demo took place at the Inspira Bonsai event in 2019, Mallorca.

I had never seen that spagnum moss bundle technique. It'd be interesting to see how the trees roots develop over time. Nice video and demo!

It just blows me away that people can have such good foresight in design. Maybe one day...thanks for sharing.

wow how beautiful. this is such a unique form of art, taking something natural out of nature then manipulate it in such a way that it mimics nature! kind of ironic really. an incredible art none the less.
this work is absolutely inspiring, if this is possible the sky is the limit really.

That's I need to purchase one of those rocks, such a great effect.
How many years would it take for the roots to anchor to the rock and reach the pot???

Why wouldn’t you make a moss ball pot around the roots?
I do like the over all design and look though. It would be AMAZING if in 20-30 years those roots followed those trails to the water dish and you had exposed roots!!

Would be nice to know what you mixed with the sphagnum moss for the substrate.

Talk about pulling it together at the end. I just wasn't seeing it, then boom there it was. Fantastic look, very well executed.

What is that brown thing that he used to make the roots reach the bottom? And where can i get those? Thanks

any reason for using sphagnum only and no keto for the eventual root highways to the pot. also didnt see him layer any akadama or an sort of planting medium directly under the root balls.
