How can I grow a red wood burl?


Answer by  GilFinn (2065)

Redwood burls grow well in a shallow bowl filled with water. They can last just about forever this way. If the burl developes roots, you can plant it and grow a new redwood tree, or you can trim the roots off, and train it into a great bonsai plant. Either way, growing burls can be enjoyable and rewarding.

Well to grow the red wood burl, you must acquire the seeds for this plant. Take the seeds as well and put them in the direction of growth you would like to see. Cultivate the soil and use some citrus peelings as well to enrich the growth. Then water daily.

This is not even remotely close to a correct answer. You place a piece of live burl into a pan of water, if it sprouts roots plant it. If not try another piece of burl.  add a comment

A Red Wood Burl is a horticulturalists dream, It Practically grows itself, Indigenous to the western coast of the united states and also is capable of growing in most climates


Answer by  Bobinski (1652)

A red wood burl is a red wood tree. The easiest way to plant one is by cloning and planted as any tree. Make sure you have enough room for the burl to develop. Plant where trees are use to growing and usually in late winter or early spring.
