I’ve got a bunch of Japanese maples, field maple and JBP seedlings. The maples i keep in shade still and they don’t get much direct sunlight. the pines gets a bit direct sunlight through out the day. They are kept in different substrates, the field maples in akadama, the JM in compost and the pines in a compost mixed with pumice. Unfortunately most of the maples look a quite tired and i’m unsure whats going on and I have a few question on regarding seedling care aswell
- Can they take sun at this point?
- how much water to they need? do need same watering as older bonsais?
- should i fertilize them?
- when can i cut of the taproot? should i wait till repotting season?
Thanks in advance for any replies
