Koto Hime Japanese Maple Progression

nope. i don’t really like the pancake look. i tried a flat surface when i airlayered the main maple in this thread, and now i don’t like the perfectly horizontal root spread as much. some of the roots were even slanting upwards. :face_with_raised_eyebrow: growing in this type of substrate seems to make roots just grow outward anyway, so i don’t really need a flat surface.

wiring up my cuttings to get a little movement in these future trunks.

putting some movement in this clump of shoots that might end up trunk sections one day. i broke the smallest shoot off trying to position the wire too fast. very brittle cultivar.
