Hello everyone. Ive been looking for some info on Bald Cypress. I just got my first one last week, and am wondering about care. Mainly sun? This tree has been in this container for 3 years recovering from collecting. I want to change the soil first. Also, it has one side that im pretty sure is dead, and will be good for some carving. It would probably be some time before i do any of that, but think it should be in some better soil. I was told it has been growing free since the collecting, and doesnt look like its done too much. Well, some of the branches are pretty thick, but the top died back, and im thinking i will need another leader. Should i chop it again, or just wait for a new one to come out near the top, then after it thickens, taper the cut into it? The first thing is soil though. Then how long to wait before doing any more, and the best time of year to do it. Thanks alot for any advice.
