When i told Springhill nursery about the black bugs, they said theywill send a new one. I just got a confirmation. the one i have has the green coming out, but i see new, I guess leaf bud. The will form the long stick parts, or just leafs?
Also...The new maple, so i do not make a mistake this time, should I take off the leaves, or is it time to repot this time of year? they send a very leafy bonsai. it is in a very small pot. Last time, i did both. Now It will be 5 years old again.Leaves only get cut, but i understand if I prune, i do not repot. The roote were so squshed in that small pot it needed the space to be repotted, so which is better, repot, or prune?
