Publishing a new video of the birch. Its setting nicely in its new pot in comparison to the "large" beech (last year yamadori) which I am almost sure is dead. Either the repotting was done a bit early, or the tree was dead already. Im giving it a few more months before the garbage bin.
The birch however is continuing the strong growth from last year.Before trimming After trimming
Im trimming all the new shoots high in the apex to cultivate the lower branches and maybe building som new ones.
The nebari is getting whiter by the day, and I think its good for a tree collected last year.
