After fall work, wire removed, leaves cleaned up, is continuing to develop in its training pot. John

Is there any way to tell if any of those branches were (thread?) grafted into place?  The first left branch in particular.

Well, the first little tree came back to me following a trade. Have continued its development, repotted this week in to a little Shozan / Shouzan illustrated pot, with the Foxes Wedding Scene on it . The tree barely fits in this pot due to the widthe of the nebari.

I just recently bought a shohin trident from Don that also has a new apex growing out. I'm excited to see it through the process!

I'm happy to see this tree again, and glad you got it back.  Its looking good John.  I like the idea of tightening up the top half.  It will really look great once you develop your secondary and tertiary branching on the upper left.  Not bad for a garden center reject.

I don't know the maker, but the picture is the Fox Wedding.

http://japanesebonsaipots.net/?s=Foxes+wedding&submit=Search. The potter is Shouzan (Joshu), who is a modern Japanese artist. Very nice detail and it doesn't have the extra zero or two a Yusen would cost. I got it from Boon after his last trip to Japan where he went to Shinkupuji Temple to visit Omura san.
