from last week’s new yorker. i chuckled.
driftingdango asked: Hey, I was wondering how to get rid of spiders in my bonsai tree, any help would be appreciated, thanks.
i use this stuff for bugs—it’s gentle and effective:
the-voyager asked: I was wondering how long it took for your wired Juniper to die? Also how long after you got it did it die? Cheers
i’m not sure, since i think it was dead/dying for a while before i was willing to accept it. i started noticing problems about 2 months after wiring, and it was definitely dead a month later. thanks for the message!
i’m very pleased to introduce my new bonsai, a 15 year old sweet plum tree. i got a text from will on sunday, letting me know he saw a guy selling bonsai on dekalb ave. i had never seen a bonsai stand on the sidewalk (though i’ve posted pictures of them before) so i walked right over! i talked to the proprietor for a bit and he ended up giving me a discount. i found some bug damage on a few leaves, but otherwise it looks great!
i got a new tree! here’s a picture of cat carrying it home. more info/pics to come!
