bending trunk using wiring
how to bend trunk of banyan bonsai using wiring?
Banyans are much like any other Bonsai...... You wanna get around 2 thicknesses of wire - 1 thicker than the other, but both relatively thin.
When you want to bend the trunk ensure you anchor the wire off in the pot, giving you leverage. Don't wire super tight without protection from raffica on the branches.
If you wire the trunk when the tree is less established you will have better results but the older the tree gets, the harder it will be!
Thanks for your question!
