Acer palmatum Arakawa - part 6.
The next light maintenance.
Een volgende lichte onderhoud.
The old Maple image in “natural grown” style begins to show itself. We are now about halfway in our training program. All that is about to follow now has to do with thickening of the trunk, ‘aging’ growth (slower growth) and ramification. The transition to the final pot is best delayed as long as possible. Every added year renders a visible improvement. We teach beginning bonsai enthusiasts to apply all techniques and to take the right steps in the right order and on the right moment. This one also is going to be a nice solitaire originated from 12 year old mass-cultivated plant material. The Old School way.
