Wow!  I think all the ideas offered all have their value, and I appreciate the feedback!  Trees are fine, they have new pots waiting for the right time, not now.  Going to Dallas Bonsai meeting Saturday.........club will help as well.  Thx all.....

Herman, I'm also in that study group with Ryan that Nathan mentioned and he gets pretty specific with particle size. I took carefull notes during the lecture part. I will bet all my trees that the only thing he was "unhappy about" was the bothersome email he had to answer. His schedule is so hectic, I would be really surprised if he jumped on here at this point or he would have done it by now like Boon, Owen and Peter Tea do.
 Please be a little bit more humble and you never know, you might learn something.  I have to go, my baobab tree is overheating. ;)

what forum is this? forums are a bad place to learn my friend....for reasons like this, bummer. No particle size has nothing to do with cooking the roots.
Ryan

P.S. give me the forum link and I'll go give you all the info you need right there on the forum post.

This was the exact email I received in reply from Ryan...

Maybe I should get him to post the info here...since you guys are still putting words in his mouth...

Lol at overheating baobab...that's not possible my friend...

After reading your post yesterday I called Ryan and of course he laughed at the whole thing. He assured me that i was basically correct and that he would go over it with me on tuesday to set the record straight. So rest assured I will post a follow up here next week.

I'm not sure why anyone would discourage Ryan Neil from joining/participating on a bonsai forum.  Not that I don't trust those in his study group to come through with the details but...

What the hell are you talking about? I will discuss with Ryan in person next week. He is very busy and it was pointless to waste more of his time on the phone about a retarded argument that I'm having with a complete newbie. In a nutshell those are the two reasons why he's not on here. 1)No time 2)doesn't want to waste the little time he has with stubborn people who hide behind their keyboard and argue more than they listen. He's use to respect, could you imagine how frustrating that would before him to be on these forums.(My words not his)

Language, please.  Let's try to keep it civil.  Perhaps a new thread to discuss cooking eggs?

Probably, but I don't think we'll go through the trouble here.

Perhaps in the future we can all be civil to one another and decide not to pollute other people's threads with pointless bickering, yes?

Ryan was offering to share the information.  You told him it wouldn't be necessary.  I'm not sure why anyone would discourage Ryan Neil from participating here.

why is it pointless? There was a point that has completely differing opinions. Is that not worthy of discussion? If the point I'm trying to make is valid or not others need to know. I lost over $3000 worth of trees this summer and so far Ryan Neil was the only opinion that has made any sense and now others are saying "BS".

Is always tough to lose good trees, hopefully you have good information to help resolve the problem in the future. I have often used very coarse planting medium in big pots, then used a much smaller mix at the top. But, I don't live in or near the desert.

That would definitely help if drying out was my problem but that was not the case. Not sure why I'm one of very few to have issues with coarse soil on JBP. No problems with my tridents but they are on the ground with some grass and other things insulating them from getting as hot. So it's hard to tell if it's the species or the temperature with those.
