When I bought this plant from the nursery it already had this shape going for it.. It was in poor health but I think I've nursed it back enough to be worked on in the upcoming season. I've used (really shitty) guy/guide wires to form some "pads" out of the branches but the two top branches stick straight up, not really sure how to go about that? Idk if I should thin it out this season even further, or to just let it grow out and do it's thing. I actually like the branch structure and I know I need lower branches but what do you guys thibk? Also, I have some weird stuff going on down at the trunk, even tho it has great nebari. I have two stumps where branches had been cut before I bought it. I'm clueless as to the direction I wanna take with that.. Maybe a jin?? Any thoughts or opinions would be really helpful and apprexiated . don't hold back! I need so,e insight, thanks!! I am new to this forum and have been "doing" bonsai for about 15 months now. Can someone please tell me how to upload pics? As this post is incredibly irrelevant without them. Thanks.
