    Acers are the signature plants of any Japanese garden. It's colourful, ever-changing fine foliage offers a stunning look for this slow-growing tree or bush. 

    We offer plants in M-size category with not yet woody stem. For more aged plants look size L. Acer is said to be sensitive, but in reality it does not want too much from us, it is quite happy also in semi-shade (in fact, too much sunlight or heat will cause leaf damage) but permanent availability of moisture from the soil ball is essential, particularly when young, i.e. regular watering is critical. You may keep it on a veranda during pleasant weather or any location with slight wind: this helps the plant to grow a stronger stem. Japanese maples are not keen for pruning, you have to be careful when cutting them back, and read about it before starting. 


    Light demand:
    it enjoys the most in dappled shade, avoid scorching sun. When detecting the first sign (when leaf tips start drying and get curled) re-locate the plant way from light, and replenish water.


    Temperature: keep it at cool but frost-free place during winter.


    Water demand: always keep the soil slightly damp, and this will be particularly critical if the plant gets any direct sunlight. But never allow too much water (dripping ball), and never place the plant into a pot or tray, where water may accumulate (this also applies onto all other kokedamas).


    Feeding: Japanese maples can grow slowly but steadily, and after some time the ball will become too small for them. To delay this process, you may not want give too much feeding to the plant. Give it some (little) substrate only in spring and summer, at every third/fourth bathing.
