    A. palmatum 'kotohime' clump

    It's been a long time since I posted here! I want to start a thread to follow the progress of this kotohime clump I got last year: It started to leaf out last week, so I repotted it into this oval pot: I'm planning on airlayering one or two branches that are growing inward. The overall...

I'm thinking this would make a nice...
