Trimmed back, air layered; plan to surgically attach all three trees togethet to get a massive base and taper.
2015-08-04 SBBK first Tues workshop:
- Wire only for a few months to avoid wire marks.
- Separate into two pots.
- Let it grow!
- Not a common bonsai-ed tree,perhaps due to Compound leaf!
- Don't leaf trim; grow trunk for some years first. Make leaves smaller later; there is no memory or cumulative effect.
- Roots need a lot of work at next repot already.
This is as close to in the ground as I've got now. Lots of earth so it's stabler tempature and moisture. Keep trimming.
Trim trim trim.
