I’m just curious about anybody who is located in Southern California and owns maple bonsais.
So far, I have an Arakawa maple and is healthy, gets morning sun, and has adequate watering/fertilizing according to the seasons and schedule. But so far, its foliage hasn’t turned into that desirable autumn color that maples are also prized for.
For those here in SoCal, what has been your experience on this subject? In general, that’s not a common thing to happen in maples here, or in general, the color-changing starts late? I know we have several microclimates in CA tho, just wondering.
P.S.: at least where I leve here in SoCal, I see liquidambars to be more sensitive to season changes and at this time basically most part of those that I’ve seen already are really reddish
