I collected this maple from my parents backyard which my dad has been unknowingly shaping for several years. I think it has some really great potential and I collected a good sized root ball. The tree was collected Feb 22.
Now for the problem. I may have hastily collected jt before being ready for proper care. I placed it into this pot with sphagnum moss as the only soil component. Turns out, the sphagnum I used is terrible quality with lots of hard stem-like bits in it and it doesn’t hold water nearly as well.
I just picked up some nice pumice from a local mine and have it sifted to 1/8 - 1/4. Also have a pond box which is just the right size for the tree.
Now knowing that pumice is by far the better soil for collected material, should I repot the tree into the new pond box with the new pumice soil? Or should I just leave it be?
Thanks in advance!
