Rock planting_part 2.
Mixing of keto and akadama starting with a half-half ratio.
Then adding keto and water until the right proportion is achieved.
Too much water and the mixture disolves. Not enough water and everything crumbles apart.
The correct proportion is attained when we have a sticky volume that doesn’t fall apart.
The fixing wires for the trees are being attached to the stones with epoxy (2-compound glue).
Unraveling of the Juniper which already had a thoroughly prepared repotting earlier.
A compact clod is needed for a successful transfer of the tree.
First of all, a thick layer of mixture is applied to the locations where the trees are being planted.
Will be continued tomorrow.
