I’m Eli the Japanese Maple, and native to the mountains of Japan. I’m a red dwarf, and my compact crimson colored leaves stay this color through summer. I like morning sun and bright indirect light in the afternoon.
Water me well about once a week, or when my pot starts to feel about 1/2 lighter. The best way to water is to submerge my pot up to the rim. Allow me to spend some days/nights outside or near an open window for some fresh air and natural light.
In winter I like to rest up outside in a protected spot from November until spring, when my baby leaves, wakaba, start to appear again.
