"Koto Hime" Japanese Maple

Post  Bolero on Tue Jun 14, 2016 2:03 pm

This is my "Koto Hime" Japanese Maple with 3 years of growth and styling...since my purchase as a Pre Bonsai, it was 5 years old when I purchased it.

It measures 11"H x 11"W x 10"D It has 6 distinct branches terminating in dense leaf pads...

It is still growing well and requires extensive pruning to obtain this style-look...

I liquid fertilize all my Bonsai twice a month and water daily sometimes twice a day...

I store 80% of my Bonsai in my garage at 40 degrees over the Winter months, I rarely lose a tree...
