Hello everyone. I have posted pics of this bald cypress before that i got from Seth E. last year, and have decided on which way i want to go with it. I know i need to repot into a better soil, and will probably put it into a little smaller growing container. I also want to carve the tree out on the side that is dead. Here is a pic of one i saw after i came up with the plan. The first two are pics of mine. Anyway, health is the main thing, so how should i go about working the tree? Since i want to change it from potting soil to bonsai soil, and clean out any roots, and carve the tree, when should i do the carving? Before repotting, next year? Should it stay in the same size container, or can i start reducing the rootmass, and put into a somewhat finished pot? Thanks in advance.
