#acer #maple it's funny how this maple isn't showing any signs of fall when the maple it's sitting under has been turning for a month now! But I know what's gonna happen is one day I'm will look at it and say when did that turn!? Wasn't yesterday! That's the way this rolls!

@acermad you got that right! I lost Taylor that I just bought this spring, it just shriveled to crispy toast 😲 never had one do that before! I guess there's always a first for everything!🙁🤔😉💘😍

@ShelleySnyder it might be ok if you can see the tiny leaf buds for next year 🤞

comment
ShelleySnyder

@acermad it turned to a crisp in about a months time after I got it , it's a long story but at any rate I returned it to where I bought it and got my money back and I will get a different Acer probably next year 💘😍

Is this just a regular japanese maple kept in a small pot to stay that size or is it a miniature version? Ive always wanted one of these but Im a renter so I need whatever works in a pot

6w
comment
ShelleySnyder

@madkeeg this one is only about 4ft. Tall now I think it's max is supposed to be 6 ft. I have a couple of others in pots also! Find you one that doesn't get over 10ft. Tall and by all means put it in a pot! They make bonsai out of these so you can cut back the roots to keep it in the size pot you choose!👍💘😍

Beautiful colors this year. I've noticed more bright colors this year. I wonder if its due to less rain?

It's roots we're wrapping themselves around my sprinkler line. It had to move. We shall see in the spring I guess.

comment
ShelleySnyder

@smileeguy mine is in a square aggrigate pot and a couple of years ago we took it out to root cut it and give it some fresh dirt, and a very large root had grown through the drain hole and was firmly in the ground!😲 Oh boy did we have a time getting it out of the pot!! A stone now sits under it!😂😂😂😂 We'll see next time. 🤔
