Picked up another but of nursery stock. Pretty happy with the base and movement. Gonna plant it in a grow bag to let it thicken a bit.
I haven’t done much to it so far besides setting the movement in the main branch. I’m not sure what to do with these two branches though. They’re the biggest primary branches on the tree, but they originate from the trunk right next to each other.
The lower of the two has the most foliage, but that will change when I clean the tree and get rid of whorls. Here are the options I’m considering.
Keep both branches, but shorten the lower one over time as I get back budding. That will make the top one the defining branch
Remove/Jin the lower
Remove/Jin the upper
