Right now, there isn't much there. I guess I would like to know what your plans are for it. What style, how big, etc.. That will help with the advice.

Nice pot. kinda looks like it wants to become a broom eventually. But i would echo sentiments about the ground.

hey, ya ide like to do a small broom style with it. and after a while i have to defoliate it osme more. the leaves are a little big now but they r down to about an inch or more in width.

growning in the ground isnt much of an option for me, i live on a farm and the animals roam everywhere.

im also thinjing about doing the trick where u grow the plant in a colander/strainer, should i do grow the maple in a strainer before or after i defoliate,

thanks.

I dont know how much good defoliating is going to do at this stage of development, isnt this going to slow your progress down?
