This was a nursery stock plant that is as close to completely root bound as I think I have ever seen. The pot has very little soil in it. I want to get this eventually into a bonsai pot. Suggestions on when and how much to cut back on roots? Any other tips are appreciated. I have read a quite a bit on the internet and seen some differing suggestions. As of now, I'm planning to time it for right before the plant is emerging in the spring...while it's in the budding stage.
Also, I am trying to root the biggest pieces I cut. I put some rooting hormone dust on it and placed it in a porous soil I am watering frequently. Is this correct?
If needed, I can look up the scientific name when I get home--unless someone knows it off the top of their head.
