After pruning, the first and heaviest wire is put on the main trunk.
After wiring and bending, the trunk is shaped into an S-curve.
After combing and pruning the roots.
After potting into a tall Japanese cascade pot. I hope it lives because it will be beautiful someday.
After unwiring, pruning, rewiring, and repotting in the same pot. There is a long section in the middle of the cascade
with no branches, so I hope something pops there. Time will tell.
I planted the larger cuttings from pruning in a pot for rooting. A layer of potting soil, then a layer of sand, then potting soil,
then more sand. The cut ends are in sand to reduce the chances for rot. I did not use a rooting hormone. Kept in deep shade for now.
