Hi experts...
Soon it will be time to wire the MP for the first time. Since at my birth my artistic eye with the placenta has been thrown away, I need your help for a while.
My feeling is that I would like to go for a semi-cascade or even a cascade here. But I would like to learn from you what other options I have left for this MP to turn it into a prebonsai later on.
I've seen so many examples on google that I can't see the wood for the trees anymore.
So your assistance is appreciated :D

Love the joke, but don't let this thing convince you of it. There's just not much there yet!

The three trunks, how they are so close, seems they are almost 3 seperate trees.
Do you know?

I think my first objective would be putting different sizes into the trunks if you intend to keep them all.

That could take between 5 and 20 years depending on work during.

Something will reveal itself by then.

Don't know about the trunks. Didn't touch the roots when repotting. Just wanted to have more drainage.
Next spring I plan to half bare root repot.

I have no artistic advice to offer other than to recommend you to just start wiring.
Then let it be for a while, see if it shows you some of its goods.

But I believe Mr. Vance Wood recommended me to not wire prematurely because it could kill dormant buds. As always I was probably in the wrong by hearing what he said but ignoring it too.
You can do better!

Thanks for the advice.
So I'll wait wiring and do a half bare root repotting in spring
