Deadwood preservation on bonsai
Lime sulphur has long been used to preserve deadwood on bonsai trees. The result of using undiluted lime sulphur is a bleached, white appearance of deadwood commonly seen on juniper species. If you prefer a less stark result, add a little black ink. This treatment should be applied at least annually for the best results; after first thoroughly cleaning the deadwood (The wood should be slightly moist when applying the lime sulphur).
Suggested application rates*
Dilute at a ratio of 1:10 - 1:20 (Lime sulphur:water).
Apply to trees during dormancy only and on a fairly warm day (+-20 deg).
Ensure you thoroughly wet the needles, branches and trunk. Lime sulphur dripping onto the soil is ok, however do not immerse the roots in the treatment.
No wetting agent is needed.
