Hi All! I’m new here. Just found the site about two weeks ago and I’m hooked. Seems like a great community here. I live in Western Pennsylvania (east coast United States), and Mirai and Heron’s Bonsai videos have rekindled my love of Bonsai.
Which brings me to my post -
I picked up a very inexpensive Dawn Redwood over the weekend, and they delivered it today. Along with accidentally leaving me a 5’ tall Bald Cypress. They don’t want to come get it, so I’m apparently its owner now! Like I said, it’s about 5’ tall, but the lowest branch is fairly far up the trunk. It’s got some small growth lower, but that growth isn’t lignified so not counting on it sticking around.
Is it worth planting this guy in the backyard to eventually do some air layering? What would you do if it was yours? Just looking for some thoughts on this. Thanks in advance and I look forward to interacting with everyone!
