Hello,everyone.Would you be so kind as to impart your preferance of favorite type of JBP starter material ,if you were to start the grow out process from seedling and seedling cuttingsšŸ§

-Natural,good quality seedlings with lower branching?(somewhat radial trimmed taproot)
OR
-Quality,almost clump style seedling cuttings?

Thanks for any input as I am trying to decide on next crop for sale at CM BONSAI.
I have a hunch it is maybe a mix of the different style product.

Thanks,
Curtis

I don't think it matters between those 2 options. As long as I have good radial roots which can be developed on either seedling or cutting and as long as there's plenty of low branches to get some low sacrifice branches I can make whatever style I want to make.
Both those JBP appear to have the required attributes. Now it is up to the grower to take full advantage of them.

It's a monster. There's nothing as sweet a bonsai raised from seed under the control of a bonsaiist. This will be as close to mame as possible for the species.šŸ˜Ž
