Acer Shishishigira gets some Late Summer Maintenance

Robert Nocher Shohin Bonsai

My Acer Shishishigira has been a little neglected in recent weeks and is badly in need of some TLC. The canopy is very full and needs to be thinned out to allow light into the interior; and the moss is obscuring one of the best features of the tree, the nebari.


After about an hours work, I’ve removed about half of the foliage (although you wouldn’t think so from the picture) and the nebari is visible again.


This is how it is looking at the moment.
