Pretty rare to see this style to begin with, and I have to admit I have never seen a clump/raft style japanese maple before. It has a lot of challenges at the moment, but with a few years of development it could be interesting. I would want to see an additional trunk as well as more development on the right side. It would be a fun tree to work on.

I agree, this could be a fun little tree.
The biggest problem right now is that the two trunks on the right side are of equal thickness. But that can easily be fixed in about 2 years.

Very cool that is a gem right there. Agreed, one of those trunks should be thickened considerably I think. I believe the one second from the right should be the one. Very nice pictures by the way.
