2014 88th Kokufu Bonsai Exhibition– Part 1 - The first step towards cultivating strong plants, is to learn about light, nutrition, soil, temperature, and many more. These five elements are supplied by the natural or artificial environment in which the plants live. If one of these elements is absent, they could hinder plant growth. Imagine what would happen If you cut down on the amount of sunlight or water available to plants.

The plant wouldn't be able to become as big or expand as quickly. Soil is made up of various components. This is why it's important to have a good soil test conducted prior to doing anything.

Leaders can assist youngsters on preparing the plots ahead of the planting. These leaders can provide an overview of the steps to do in order to prepare the plots to plant. This can include topics like preparation of the soil before planting, which seeds to plant, and how to plant the seeds. The youngsters can then follow the instructions of the leader on the day of the planting. Youth can be motivated to work in a team by asking them questions or by discussing issues with each other.

It is crucial to inform them that they have the power to take the decision and that they have control of the results of their actions. Leaders can request students to write down their goals and then make plans to meet them.

All living things, except for a handful of groups of bacteria, rely on photosynthesis for their existence. Photosynthesis is the method by which plants produce the food they consume. Plants use sunlight energy to mix CO2 and water to produce oxygen and sugar before which they release into the atmosphere.

How do they get it done? The sun's light is absorbed by the aid of chlorophyll (a green pigment) in the leaves. Chlorophyll is photosensitive, that is, it can change its chemical structure when it absorbs light.

The requirements of plants for temperature varies. Certain plants are tolerant of cold temperatures, while others do not. They can be classified as tough or tender, in relation to their tolerance to cold temperatures.

Hardy plants are more cold-resistant and are able to tolerate temperatures lower than their freezing point. They can be grown outside, including in cold regions of the nation. Hardy plants are perennial.

Soil is a store house of decaying plants, animals water, nutrients, and moisture. Plants absorb nutrients stored in the soil through their roots. While plants do get a few nutrients from the air, they require the majority of their nutrients from the soil.

The essential nutrients needed by plants are stored in the soil in the form compounds, called macronutrients. The macronutrients are broken down to nutrients which plants can absorb and use. Macronutrients are used in huge quantities by plants.

One of the best ways to maintain plants at home is to plant seeds in the indoors. You can do this by buying cheap seedlings from the local nursery or a grocery store. When you've got your seeds planted, you can keep them warm and secure by placing them in a pot that's placed on top the refrigerator.
