Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

Hey Paul, I really like your Red Maple.
How long have You been growing this one?
What size is it?
Very good job with material that is not the easiest to make a Bonsai with.

Hello Ken,

Thanks for taking the time to comment on this tree. I appreciate your compliments very much.

I started this particular maple from seed in 1994. It is approximately 20" tall and 24" wide.

This is a local variety of Red Maple that seems to respond to bonsai culture very well.

Regards,
Paul

How long did you let the tree wrap to the rock in sand or soil, before it was ready to be re-potted ? i currently have a Japanese red maple im experimenting on with this technique

Hello McMaple.

The amount of time varies and depends on how much growth you can get during each growing season. For me, it usually takes three to five growing seasons to get the roots firmly established over the rock surface.

I might suggest you check out this thread which explains the process in more detail.

Here's what the tree looked like back in January.

Let me know if you have any questions.
