Bought this mame Hinoki Cypress (Chaemycyparis Obtusa) a couple pf years ago from a friend who had it upright in a drum pot. I left it initially and then repotted at a new angle to become a future cascade. I’ve left it alone for the past 2 years. Finally I’ve wired the primary branches. Seems to be a fragile wee thing and can lose leaves/branches easily. Primary aim is to grow an apex from the branch that I’ve twisted upward behind the trunk.
