    Sharp's Pygmy Maple

    I obtained this Sharp's Japanese Maple stock last year from a local nursery and it underwent its first styling during the Fall. At the end of Fall I decided that the maple needed a better secondary structure and potentially better development of primary branches. This year I will allow about...

    Newbie could use some help with new tree

    Hello, everyone. I just joined and and wanted to ask the community a few quick questions: I got this maple yesterday, it's planted in regular dirt (I think) with some kind of spongy black rocks (almost like perlite) with an orange coating, on top of the dirt. It is 7 years old, according to the...

    Nursery Maple Styling Recommendations

    Just picked up this guy for $30 at local nursery. I had a hard time not getting about 5 maples with them being 25% off, but they're getting a bunch of new ones next week, so I'm going to wait till then and probably get more. Anyway, I was trying to get some recommendations on styling. He's...

    New Maple Died

    So I purchased a small maple about 3 weeks ago and I'm not sure if it was a bad graft, or I just can't keep it alive or what but it's already dead. I watered it about every 2-3 days depending and was in about 6 hours of direct sun. It never actually budded or shown any signs of new leaves coming...

    Trident Maple Repot

    Spent a bit of time repotting this trident maple yesterday the leaves are opening out so didn’t have much choice. Got a cold couple of weeks so hopefully my protection is adequate. There’s still a couple of crossing branches but I think I’ll just leave those for this year and see how it leafs...

    Saving a maple

    Hello everyone, this tree might be a little difficult but i wanted to save it since it was going to a bin. Someone i know renovated their place and kept this maple as small hedge. I found it and asked to have it. Do you think there is any chance for it to become somewhat of a bonsai. Advices?

    Not sure what to do for my maple

    Hi everyone! I’m new to bonsai (honestly new to long term plant care in general) and I’m not sure what to do for my maple sapling. My boyfriend gave this one to me at the beginning of August and we potted it in this pot at that time. I’m worried about drainage as I live in the PNW in a North...

    Advice for Red Maple Recently Air-layered

    Would very much appreciate advice on choosing a leader for this recently grown air-layered red maple. I'm new to the art and chose this odd branch back in April because of the odd twisting fork. I didn't know any better (and probably still don't :)) so I figured it would be interesting in some...

    Collected field maple tree

    Collected this small tree today. Was growing from a large tree root, fully exposed to sun all day, in south east coast UK. I love, it it has so many small leaves. Should it be kept full sun all day, should I keep it in the shade for awhile? Any advice is welcome

    Acer palmatum disease advice

    Hello everyone, the edges of the new shoots of my Sangokaku, Bi-Hoo and Deshojo japanese maples are turning black and I dont know why. I dont think they will mature properly, if I do nothing theyll probably just die. Maybe it looks like Im overreacting to you, but I just had to burn my largest...

    Wind Protection - Apartment Balcony

    Just moved to a 15th floor apartment with an east facing balcony in New York. Would love to add some trees (have my eyes set on a maple) but I am concerned about wind damage and proper wintering. I have been reading these forums for solutions but it looks like most people with similar questions...

    So, my deshojo maple died :(

    I always loved maples, they are not really common here in my country, and i knew it would be a hard species to take care in my region, but it actually went pretty well until this summer, wich was way hotter than usual, and it really felt the heat, all the leaves burned from the intense sun (even...

    Potting up

    Hello, I live in North Alabama and have only been immersing myself in bonsai for about 3 years or so. In the very beginning, I somewhat foolishly purchased a Trident Maple forest from an online mass-producer of bonsai trees. It remains very vigorous after the few years I've had it. It is the...

    Normal or not?

    Hey Friends, I have another question, I’ve noticed some drooping foliage on my large maple, I checked the soil and was extremely dry, it has been a weird winter in Seattle, spring temps have come early and left. So the watering has been inconsistent. Can you guys look at the image of the cut...

    New to Bonsai, new tree

    Hello all! I've done a little research on Bonsai and recently went to a nursery and picked up a maple for $20. The lady who sold it to me just said it was a maple, I think we had a language barrier. I cut it down a bit but was looking for some advice on next steps for this tree. Should I...

    Beautiful Amur Maple in a Tom Benda Pot

    Unfortunately, for financial reasons I have to part with the crown jewel of my collection. This is an Amur Maple I purchased from Ryan Neil, it was repotted last year and is growing vigorously in this Tom Benda pot (same style, but larger, than this one). With a few years of refinement this is...

    Coral Bark Maple

    Hello everyone! This maple was won at my local Sacramento bonsai club raffle earlier this year and this was its first styling since it's been in my possession. A fellow member of my local club, Roger Steel, was kind enough to host a workshop and allow me to work on this tree. This tree was...
