cascading effect in my bonsai

hi :D well as you know if you read my other posts i intend to try and start a grapefruit and a pomegranet bonsai from seed, and i know that its not usual but would it be posible to create a cascading effect in either one, and if it is because they are both so young could i attache a smal wait to the top of the trees to make it grow downward, insted of waiting untill they are older and wireing them? thanks :D as usual all help and replies are greatly appreciated

Young materials won't survive if messed with too soon. weighing it down on the main stem probably works but any new buds will want to grow upwards toward the sun light anyways and you can't wire them even if u wanted to until the wood turns semi-hard
