Bald Cypress Bonsai Tree – Coiled Trunk

(taxodium distichum)

 

General Information – Bald Cypress

Botanical Name: Taxodium distichum
 
Description: The bald cypress is a deciduous tree that grows best in wet/soggy conditions. The needles may fall off the tree over the winter, or they may stay on the tree until the spring. The tree is a fast grower, and can achieve 36 inches of growth in just one year.
 
Position: The tree needs to be grown in full sun. It may be grown out of doors in USDA planting zones 5b to 9.
 
Watering: Plants grown in the south should be watered daily. Watering is best accomplished by submerging the pot in water for approximately 30 minutes.
 
Feeding: Feed with a fertilizer containing a 10-10-10 ratio of potassium, nitrogen and phosphorous twice a month during the growing season.
 
Leaf and Branch Pruning: Undesirable leaves may be removed throughout the growing season. Shaping is easily achieved by regular pinching-back of new shoots. The bald cypress bonsai looks best when trained into an upright and formal shape.
 
Re-potting & Growing Medium: Because the tree grows so rapidly, frequent re-potting is necessary. The plant must be grown in soil that is highly retentive of water. Mushroom compost is an excellent choice.
 
Wiring: The use of wires on Bald Cypress trees could cause damage to the bark because the tree grows quickly. Tying down the branches with twine is a better, more successful, alternative.
 
Notes: Bald cypresses that grow in the wild have lived to the grand age of 1000 years.
