Mildew

Mildew is a fungus diseas which thrives in hot, humid conditions. Once established it is difficult to control. Prevention is better than cure, so spray trees prone to mildew (oaks, Pride of India) early in the season and repeat throughout the summer.

The systemic fungicide, 'Funginex' can be used.

Remember that it is usually advisable to use garden sprays at a weaker strength for our bonsai, than recommended for normal garden purposes.

Random Bonsai Tip

Straightening training wire - For those who don't know and for those who have forgotten - to straighten training wire that has been removed from a tree, grasp each end of the wire with a pair of pliers and jerk apart. Alternatively, grasping one end of the wire in a vice, and the other with pliers is much more effective as then it is possible to rub the shaft of a screwdriver up and down the wire getting rid of the small bumps.
