I’m attempting to turn my mgambo (Majidea zangueberica) into a bonsai… or something of the sort.
This idea came from my fascination of desert roses (which I will be getting soon) and the fact that I had this tree that is usually quite large but I have it growing in a small pot.
A little update on my tree
I posted some time ago that the all the leaves on the tree turned brown and fell off.
This happened twice. I’m not sure why though. I don’t know these trees to be deciduous.
Somewhere along the way I broke off the top of the tree in an attempt to allow the buds below to grow and they did. Then they fell off again.
So here’s what I did (bear in mind I have no idea what I’m doing).
I took the plant out the pot…
and refilled it with some fresh soil raising the plant some and tilting it a bit and I cut off the top.
This was the end product.
We’ll see how this project goes.
Oh and the top of the plant that I chopped off, I stuck in in a vase with water to see if it would spout any roots. I’m not sure it will but it’s worth a try.
