"Maruta Ichiban Shibori® Rapeseed Meal", with a constitution that is greatly different from normal rapeseed meal, is used for Tamahi. Normal rapeseed meal is extracted using organic solvents, so the oil content in the rapeseed meal is 1% or less. Conversely, Maruta Ichiban Shibori® Rapeseed Meal is produced with a traditional manufacturing method called compression; hence, the meal has a very high oil content of about 8%. This oil content is extremely effective and achieves an effect incomparable to other fertilizer.
Insects such as fruit flies may show up, but this is evidence that microorganisms are decomposing the Tamahi, and the effect of the fertilizer is emerging. The insects are no harm the plants, but if the insects bother you, putting down a layer of soil will improve the situation. The presence of insects is indication that the fertilizer is effecting.
Tamahi has been used traditionally and is indispensable for growing bonsai in Japan.
- Image shown is of the actual tree you will receive unless stated otherwise in the actual product's description
- The height given is from the base of the pot to the top of the tree.
- The tree received may be slightly different from the picture. Whilst we try to keep the photos of our trees as up to date as possible, these are live plants and, as such, will continue to grow and change slightly in between the times we take the photos.
- Some of our Bonsai pots are bought in bulk and unfortunately it's impossible to photograph each single item so the photograph used is taken from one random item of each collection we sell. In 99% of cases this means that any differences won't even be noticeable, however, if you have seen a particular image of a pot that has a certain streak of paint in a certain place, bear in mind that the pot you receive may not be 100% identical to this.
