    That’s the top I cut off, and I assume still living off of stored energy? I’m curious to see how long Till that dies.

    I’m following that guide this time, the only touching I’ll be doing is with water. I’m just hoping it keeps doing well

    How long till I should know if my saw job killed it? Is it past that?

    Still growing well, hopefully it continues. Haven’t done anything else to it since the viscous chop job. 2 pics from a week or two ago and two from today.

    Hopefully I didn't do to much to it and hurt any roots or prep it to dry out. Thanks for saying it looks like a decent tree. Ill leave it be now, I took the advice to chop thinking itd be ok. hopefully it will, ill update eventually either way.

    Is it to late to cut it?

    I knew I wanted to do it, and decided why not now. I figured it was growing well so it’d be ok

    A little update- I ended up going with the cut now group. Hopefully I got a good spot, and I stuck the other part in soil just in case by some fluke a 1-2 inch wide “cutting” takes. Here’s the pics before and after the cut. Hopefully the little one right at the top grows strong

    I think if I do cut it’ll be somewhere above the 2nd turn. But as it’s still very thick I’m not sure if I should go lower to get more taper?

    And bring something to cut the big roots. Ima bring something like this next time. I ended up using a little saw and wire cutters haha. There were four think ones that ran far away and got cut off. Those cuts by far took the longest.

    About the “soil” I couldn’t tell what’s in it accurately. It has lava, pumice, bark, Napa oil dry stuff I found from the forums, sieved. Only prob is I just do it by look, didn’t spend the time to find the right stuff

    I’m kinda surprised there is such strong support on both cutting and not cutting. I woulda guessed it wasn’t safe. So I’ll add this point- I’ve been growing bonsai for about 5 years. I have Repotted many trees, with not one living. at the highest I believe I had 30 trees, mostly in nursery...
