    New Field Maple with girthhhh

    Went to buy wire, got pulled in by this chunky trunk. A few cut marks on one side (this will most likely be the back!) It's my first maple, been wanting to try one, thought this would be a good start! Looks healthy and yeah, I'm a fan of the trunk. It's not perfect, but I think it's workable...

    Hello all, Let’s play name the fungus, if you will please? I swear I’ve seen this in pictures on the internet before but it’s no tar spot or common black spot, it looks.... worse. It’s a Maple, Beni chidori. It appeared on random leaves, not localised or on new or old leaves. Tree is otherwise...

    My Japanese maple is turning black.

    Hi all! So my maple was sprouting new leaves last week and one day it got too hot and we left it out on our balcony (we live in an apartment), came home and all the new leaves wilted and eventually fell off. I notice there are black spots all over the branches and trunk. I’m not sure if it’s...

    Maple Cuttings propagation Oxyclone?

    Curious if it is possible to propagate Japanese Maples from cuttings using a Oxyclone Hydrofarm recirculating unit. Do they respond well to the oxygen and water? Or do they require soil? I was thinking of adding some rooting hormone solution to the water but I am reading that just plan tap water...

    Small Nishikigawa

    I've started training this maple about 3 years ago. It was a grafted cultivar. First season I ground layered it. The second season of having it, I put it on a board. No nails to spread out roots, just screwed to a board and left to grow. Third season, I skipped work. Just too busy with things...

    Root Over Rock Trident Maple

    I must have been inspired by @Brian Van Fleet to do a root over rock trident maple when I started this who knows maybe 3 years back? I got the cutting from @Eric Group. I cant remember but I think it's spent its time growing in containers. This time I'll continue but will let roots escape. I...

    Acer Palmatum 'Beni-Maiko'

    Hello, I picked up a new Maple from Bobby. We are unconfirmed on exact cultivar, so please do have a few guesses if you like. I expect maybe next spring, as the leaves emerge and mature, will give more info. We do suspect 1 cultivar but I will not say it, and see what people guess :) DSC_0804...

    Air Layering

    So I did air layering for the first time after watching many videos on it's so I knew how to do it properly. I did it on a lions head Japanese maple that I have; I air layered two branches on this tree and waited 8 weeks. I checked today if there were roots and this is what I saw (see pictures)...
