Hi Jeff,


No styling comments, but perhaps a dumb question; is the tree inside?

The tree now goes off in too many different directions. This would be the simplest solution, with a change of planting angle to make this a cascade or semi-cascade.

hi,

after a repot and root reduction like this do nothing for 6 months. then don't attempt wiring and severe bending while thew tree is actively growing - so spring to mid summer is rest time, then mid to late summer the trees stop growing so if you are desperate you can wire now, but the tree will have a 2nd growth period in early Autumn so that is another 6-8 week leave alone period. it is best to not wire and bend until winter really.

the obvious is a cascade but the bonsai could have been created a bit quicker and with less stress to the tree if you'd picked the style first, done the styling then just done one repot at the correct angle.

cheers

HI just let the tree grow and do some slight triming to premote growth in other spots. Smile
