Japanese maple early development

Last year I air-layered this Japanese maple and it has developed like a charm. In the attached video you will see how I go from a layered branch to a first styled bonsai. Naturally, over the years to come it will take a lot of work to get this to become a fully refined bonsai but I am quite happy with the first outcome!

  1. Thanks for posting this video. I’ll have to order a nibbler and do this with two of my maples next season.

Tell me what you think!
