Any suggestions on how (and if!!) to shape this? 1 month 2 weeks ago #49803

Hey there,
I'm rather new to bonsai and new to the forum too.
I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to shape this plant.
And, most importantly, if it is possible to try and have a bonsai out of it.

Thanks a lot for any suggestions!

Cheers,
Marco.

Hello, Marco.
Yes, it is possible, but now it's just a bush and you will have to thin it out before deciding the style it will fit in.

Hey,
thanks a lot for the super-fast feedback! Do you have any a-priori recommendation about some shape I should be chasing while thining it out, or should I just be "guided" by the plant?

Cheers,
Marco.

Looks like you have yourself a formal or informal upright there. Do let the tree guide you. Work through the branches that you have, and select those that are evenly distributed arbound the trunk, and have ever decreasing thickness as you go up the trunk.

Do NOT remove too much of the green on the inside. Avoid the ponpon look.
