Crape Myrtle Bonsai Project Repotting Videos

Well, iMovie gave me a bunch of grief, so I was unable to merge these two clips into one for uploading to YouTube. So, there are two clips instead of just one.

Part 1

Part 2

Sadly, almost immediately after repotting, all the leaves wilted, and while I thought this was just shock and that they’d recover — especially because they stayed supple and soft for some days — they are now all dry and crispy.

So, I may be pruning the tree down much sooner than expected in the hopes that reducing the over all bio-mass encourages the roots to continue to support what remains.

If anyone looking at my soil mixture spots an obvious mistake I’ve made with it, please alert me to how I could correct this.
