You can set the pots in larger pots and let the roots escape through the drainage holes. It works well to get the trees through summer. I'm sure this technique has been around forever but I learned of it through @jeremy_norbury.How does watering work with mame trees? I'd imagine that they would dry out at a stupid fast rate.
As addition to this you could also place spaghmum moss on the small pot that helps a bunch too
Thanks! I'm definitely enjoying them. Looking forward to seeing everyone else's progression.@VAFisher
Nice tree's you got, you are setting the bar high !
Also thnx allot for adding the extra progression pics it realy shows why mame trees are such fun with such small material where the comment would be grow a thick trunk first with these little tree's building of primary branching starts rather quick and shows fast results with normaly uninteresting small cheap stock
I have to post new photos, too. Are we going to post them in this thread?
Your not using straw as an insulator for cold are you? I've been reading it can actually draw critters to bed and munch.
