This one was collected with very few roots this spring.
After a month in black bag and another 2 months of growth it looks like new roots must have formed and it is looking nice and healthy, so it was submitted to some wiring already that can´t hurt it I am sure.
Here are the pics of it in the wild, after collection and current state.

Beautiful shape! WOW!
But...
Leaves will have to be reduced, someday, somehow, right?
:-)
Keep us posted on the progression!

Look at the first photo :)
Leaves are actually quite allright on these, mine are extra large due to me removing all the other buds that appeared all over the trunk.
Plus heavy watering and now fertilizing too.
It has only that branch allowed to grow, so it needs big leaves.
But once I get the ramification everything will be adjusted - watering and feeding too.

Thank you :) Since I got "bitten by the bug" my interest turned into real obsession. I already have over 50 potted trees and it seems there´s gonna be more.

I like this tree as a potential cascade but when I was inspecting it few days ago and have been turning it around in my hand, I noticed that it might look even better from different angles and become a very different tree.
Very hard decision for me now.
What do you think, which style would ft it the best?
