The Acer palmatum is better known as the Japanese maple. The Japanese maple is very suitable for bonsai. The species is suitable for all sizes of bonsai. It is an easy species that grows well. Hundreds of varieties of Japanese maple can be found with all kinds of different shapes and characteristics. In the fall, the bright colors of the species are very impressive.
The pot of the tree is handmade by me. There is a crack in the bottom that has been reinforced with glaze. This makes the pot frost resistant.
The Japanese maple is not a difficult tree in terms of care. It is important that the tree is always sufficiently moist. Especially during hot summer days it is important that the tree gets enough water.
