This is one of my maple shohin earlier in the year on show.
So having pinched out extension growth as it emerged it’s now time to remove one of every pair to bring in the light and aid further development of inner growth. By removing one of each pair of leaves it will not push out a new set.
It’s looking a little ruffled due to doing in in the rain but it will sort it’s self out and now some light will get in. If you think you may show during the summer leave it here in 3 weeks the stalks will drop off and it won’t show.
For me it’s still not open enough so I cut in half some of the bigger leaves especially around apex.
