so my friends dad gave me this Japanese Red Maple seedling from his garden (he knows I'm into plants and for some reason so many of these trees grow around their yard) and it looked from what I could tell ok. I looked it up in my book and I read that they do best in a moderatly shaded spot while still getting sun, I asked my mom and she thinks its just shock, I'm thinking it'l need some quality soil, maybe an actual pot (while keeping it a small one) and maybe a lil time to adjust, but I noticed when I just went outside that the leaves where turning downwards mroe than they were this morning, so I brought it inside into a room in my house that seems to be very good for growing plants in, in the pictures ull see many of my mom's tomato plants that she starts each year in this room, and ive had other plants that've been in there for years and still are that have grown tremendously.
one side shot of the seedling:
the drainage holes at the bottom of the Dixie cup that it's in(the soil drains pretty well and the holes seem to work):
the window where the light comes from:
a full-view shot of the tree in the cup, its on the floor just for this shot:
