The Caesalpinia Ferrea displays the most beautiful bark due to it exfoliating easily but not completely leaving large dark brown patches, off white and green often in a mottled pattern (the dark brown happens gradually as the tree ages and becomes more established – this also only happens if the tree is healthy, if not the bark will remain dark brown). The Caesalpinia Ferrea also has tiny, bell shaped flowers which are golden yellow and appear in spring followed by dark seed pods contained in a typical legume seed, and displays a compound leaf, which will be smaller when the Caesalpinia Ferrea is bonsaied. The Caesalpinia Ferrea can handle full sun or light shade and if a few are planted together they can make a pretty mini-forest.

 

When bonsaiing the Caesalpinia Ferrea you will notice it is delicately twiggy and the thin layer of leaves which allow a penetrating view into the branch structure within. It is a fast growing tree so if you do use wiring it is important to remove the wires at the appropriate time to avoid scarring however the scars will heal if the tree is allowed rapid growth. The Caesalpinia Ferrea can also handle severe root trimming without harm, you can place the Caesalpinia Ferrea into a plastic bag to maintain humidity while the tree recovers (do not allow full sun at this time). An unique charm this bonsaied Caesalpinia Ferrea offers is that as it develops and the roots become more established you may note knobby lumps on the exposed basal roots, the roots are often one sided and creates unbalanced root systems. Once the trunk of the Caesalpinia Ferrea is the ideal size you can maintain the internodes through diligent pruning and restricting the plant in a smaller container. You can also prune the individual leaflets by cutting them back to the first leaflet section, this works well and maintains the scale of the plant in bonsaied form. The Caesalpinia Ferrea does well bonsaied and is happiest in bonsai soil which maintains moisture but drains well (be careful to not let the Caesalpinia Ferrea dry out).

 

When planting your seed, you can nip the seed with a nail clipper and then place the Caesalpinia Ferrea seed in water to soak overnight. Then plant the seed into the bonsai soil (available on Seedleme) and within a day or two the sprouts will begin growing.

 

Please note; if the tree is roughly handled the leaves will fold up (they do also fold up at night).
