Looking a little skinny up top but not bad for one season growing in the mountains . I am gonig to repot early and give it a nudge inside to see what happens .

Amazing what a nudge will do . Repotted and brought this tree inside last friday today started pushing new growth almost immediately .

This tree has settled into its new pot since early September and has been pushing new growth regularly .I really like the pot tree combo but after this comp, I may put it back into a 'pond' pot and let it run to thicken the branches up a bit . I am tempted to leave it till after leaf drop so I can see it in autumn color . Stands about 12 cm

It's a little bit leggy and it still needs to thicken the branches . But the Autumn colors are glorious .

Wow, spectacular colour, and I agree that the tree/pot combo is great (good pot for shohin).

Lovely little tree and interesting to note the difference in response between the one inside and the one left out

Epic colour.
Few of my trees coloured better than usual this year too?
One of the fabulous things about growing bonsai is as you get old and decrepit your trees get old and beautiful
