TOPIC: About japanese maple

About japanese maple 6 months 2 weeks ago #36303

I have japanese maple material, and I live in the tropics.

It's the maple will change its four seasons cycle ...?

because as far as I know, maple leaves will fall in October to november. but instead, my maple thrives this month.
thank you...

Do you meant that there are no seasons where you live? The maple needs the cold part of the year for dormancy. I don't know if your maple will survive.

Growing a maple in the tropics seems hard enough to me, growing a bonsai maple sounds impossible.
It does need the cold period. If it doesn't get that, it will probably live and grow, but not for a long time. It will eventually die.

People have succesfully grown bonsai in the tropics by keeping them in the fridage for 2+ months. Make sure you wrap them in plastic, or they will dry out. And air thge plastic against fungi.

It is NOT easy to do succesfully, but it is possible.

I hope it will grow well here.
I got this maple last year in a local nursery, and it's about 3 years old from the graft process. and I see the growth is very good here. I hope it will be a beautiful bonsai ... haha
