Kiku lime sulfur (Sulphur) is used to bleach or whiten deadwood on a jin or shari on bonsai.  It also helps preserve the deadwood.  This process is very common on junipers along with several other species that feature deadwood.

NOTE:  This product will ship UPS ONLY.  Please do not choose USPS at checkout.  If USPS is chosen it will delay the order and we may need to collect additional shipping prior to sending the order.

How to use:
This process is best to do when it is the hottest time of year.

1.  Put on protective gloves and googles to keep lime sulfur off of skin and out of eyes.  An N95 particulate mask is also recommended.

2.  Moisten or wet deadwood 1 hour prior to applying.  The object is to let the water saturate the deadwood which will allow the lime sulfur to easily enter the deadwood.

3.  Dilute lime sulfur as desired with water.  This lime sulfur is a concentrate, but has been used without diluting.  I usually do 50/50

4.  Apply lime sulfur with a short, stiff bristle brush (nylon works best).

5.  Avoid getting lime sulfur on anything other than deadwood.  Lime sulfur will remove the color from most things.

6.  Reapply as needed after drying.

Keep out of reach of children and pets.
Avoid contact with eyes and skin. 
Do not mix with acids.
Use in ventilated area and avoid fumes.

First Aid:
Eyes: Hold eye open and rinse with water for 15 minutes.
If Swallowed: Call a poison control center, physician or emergency room immediately.

Active Ingredients:
Calcium Polysulfide - 28%
Other Ingredients - 72%

Plants & Tree Shipping:
We ship bonsai trees and plants from either our parnter nursery or our in house nursery depending on the tree.  We may limit when we ship trees to help limit their exposure to extreme environments.  For example we may not ship if it will cause the tree to sit in a truck over a weekend or holiday.

Many trees are shipped by Fedex from our partner nursery in the south central united states.  Expect delivery to the West Coast to be 4-6 Business days via Fedex Ground.  To the rest of the continental USA it will take 1-4 Business Days.  Please contact us if faster shipping is needed.

If we are shipping from our Harrisburg, PA location, the tree may arrive via any carrier, but usually UPS or USPS.  Delivery is the same as above as far as time in transit.

Trees are shipped in custom boxes made just for shipping trees.  Sometimes we wrap the pot and soil in plastic to prevent it from spilling out in transit.  Many times we use packing peanuts as they have proven to be very reliable in keeping trees safe in shipping.  If a box is noticiably damaged, please take pictures prior to opening.
