So I got this from a local nursery for a really good discounted price. Was told that it was ant infested and might not survive. Once I got it home I didn’t really notice any ants so I have been just letting it get strong and grow. I wanted a “weeping willow” style. I have seen Japanese maple in yards with this look and wanted to try to try this as a bonsai. I reduced the top and wired the branches into the weeping willow style back in December. Recently just re-potted and uncovered some decent nebari that was below the dirt line. My hopes for the next few years is to create a good top and keep reducing the pot size and root ball. Any thoughts on the tree is much appreciated.
