This might be very amibitious of me, as a total newbie to bonsai (got my first one just under a month ago!), but I was wondering if you guys think this pomegranate is suitable for eventual styling into a cascade bonsai. I liked the leaning trunk, and remembered reading pomegranates are suitable for bonsai (only later to realise that's the nana variety!). Here s the pic:
Any advice on how I should go about this? I was thinking of leaving it in this pot for the time being, perhaps start bending it at the point where its starts goin up again, and trim and shape the bit before that as its apex:
Was also wondering whether I should cut it down to about half the size, and establishing a new leader, so as to avoid all that energy going into bits I do not intend to keep anyway. Maybe just keep one extra branch? (is that what they call a sacrificial branch?)
Your expert advice would help loads. Been to many forums, but i was impressed with the amount of dedication I found here! Thanks in advance!
