2017 GIFT LIST #1
HAWAIIAN LAVA PLANTINGS

THE MOST SUCCESSFUL EASY-CARE GIFTS FOR HOMES & OFFICES!

                There's a lot of confusion about the term:  "INDOOR BONSAI."  Many improperly use this term for any tropical or imported Chinese bonsai but these need high-light greenhouses and are not houseplants!  To differentiate,  Fuku-Bonsai trademarked:  "TRUE INDOOR BONSAI™" for our houseplant bonsai that can grow indoors throughout the year! Combine the interest and beauty of Hawaiian lava rock with a durable pre-trained houseplant, skillfully and efficiently grown by Fuku-Bonsai's hard-working staff in large quantities to the highest standards. The plants are pre-trained BEFORE they are rock planted.   The rock restricts root systems to slow the growth.  Fuku-Bonsai's Dwarf Schefflera Lava Plantings are the most successful easy-care gift items for anyone, anywhere who can grow houseplants!

                  MORE INFORMATION ABOUT HAWAIIAN LAVA PLANTINGS

DWARF SCHEFFLERA  (Schefflera arboricola)

               HAWAIIAN LAVA PLANTINGS are grown in four sizes:  small (S),  desk (D), medium (M), and large (L).   Older larger sizes are the best values. Fuku-Bonsai has grown Hawaiian Lava Plantings since 1962.  Give them a lot of light and thin out and remove oldest leaves. You will be able to enjoy the structure and light will reach the inner growth.  If you have questions,  we're just email or call by phone.

              Our basic model is now "HAWAIIAN LAVA PLANTINGS (XG) with extra screened lava gravel but no display saucer. We are learning that our screened, porous lava gravel is the ideal size.  The porous material holds just the right amount of moisture in almost all indoor conditions in homes and offices.  It is superior to hard aquarium gravel or larger rounded river rocks that are less effective in holding humidity. This allows you to select your own display container.   In very dry situations with interior heating or air conditioning, an incurved glass container is proving very easy-care as it acts like a semi-terrarium.  Our most popular HS8(M) is available with a melamine display dish for a nice compact ideal gift.

DWARF SCHEFFLERA IS OUR SPECIALTY!
        It is the most durable of all proven houseplants and has the best bonsai traits. Our plants are pre-trained before being planted into the lava rocks which restrict growth.  Care is simple.  Saturate the entire rock planting in water for 30 minutes once per week, drain, and display on DRY gravel.  White root tips tell you all is okay.  Black rotting roots indicate over-watering.   In hard water areas, use distilled water to prevent unsightly white deposits. 
 
       The photo is of Fukumoto grand daughter Nicole in 1987 when the first Dwarf Schefflera small and desk size lava plantings were introduced.  Fuku-Bonsai had been growing and shipping Dwarf Schefflera but only as medium and large size. Compare the improved quality of the small and desk sizes that we now ship.  We tend to take sales photos when we introduce the item and ship higher quality and guarantee satisfaction and safe arrival.  At times the quality that we ship is far above the photo standard and we often get compliments but never any complaints!  Each bonsai is unique and we will continue to try to ship highest quality products! 

          FERTILIZING:  Fuku-Bonsai now includes a small complimentary packet of Nutrient Granules with each plant.  The major cause of first year plant problems are either over-watering (which rots the roots) or under-watering (which kills plants); or too much of the wrong kind of fertilizer (which burns the roots).  The major cause of second, third, or fourth year problems is usually because the plant was never fertilized.  We incorporate ultra slow-release fertilizer so the plant will grow well for two or more years without fertilizing but eventually it runs out and the plant steadily goes downhill.  We now supply the same specialty professional fertilizer that we use that is not normally available. Fertilizing wih the wrong kind of fertilizer when the plants are in poor condition often causes "over-fertilizing" problems. 

 
          COLD OR OTHER DAMAGE:  Each January and February we get emails that plants look droopy and suffering. This is very often because the tropical plants were exposed to drafts or temperatures below 50.  Some office buildings in cold climates may not be heated over the weekend.  If you have problems,  take a photo and send with an email with as much information and as soon as possible. We'll try to help.

PACHIRA   (Pachira aquatica)

 

                This is a very durable plant that is a member of the Baobab family that develops a heavy, bulbous trunk making it drought resistant.  But, as a plant that grows in rainforests, it is also able to handle being over watered.  It's amongst the most durable of all houseplants.   Our unique training method creates large trunks.  We call these our "Little Fatsos!"

                 Pachira is a unique tropical plant grown from seeds of Fuku-Bonsai trees.  The flowers are beautiful "powder-puffs"  and the seed pods begin to form shortly after the flowers fall.  The seed pods resemble Cacao pods. The 1" seeds are already starting to sprout when the pod cracks open.  For more about this fascinating plant  go to:  www.fukubonsai.com/3a3d.html

DRACAENA (Dracaena marginata)

                Our LOW-LIGHT CHAMP!  To grow True Indoor Bonsai compact with a lot of character, the more light the better!  Give plants a lot of light near windows or with supplemental artificial light.  But, what if your home or office doesn't have windows and the only light is the fluorescent tubes on the ceiling?  That's when Dracaena will out-perform Brassaia, Pachira, or Dwarf Schefflera.  It's a very different concept.  Instead of growing short and stocky, allow Dracaena to grow tall without pruning.  The lower the light, the more slender and elegant the leaves! These are our favorite gifts for non-plant people.  They're easy-care and very durable  .  .  .   almost "customer-proof!"
