Title: When to decandle or cut candles on JWP
Post by: Steven on May 05, 2014, 10:49 AM
Hello everyone. It has been a long time. Just have a question. I have a Arakawa JWP(grafted of course) and its candles are pushing strong and about to push needles. I am just wanting to control growth. It is no where near a considered bonsai. Don't want the growth to get too leggy. When is it time to control this energy?

Be sure to leave some needles on the twig.
