Japanese maple seedlings – Acer palmatum – Green leaf

 These seedlings are:

  • These seedlings are healthy plants that’s still pliable to be bend.
  • Compact internodal lengths.
  • They are not suitable for root grafts.
  • They are deciduous and in winter lose their leaves.
  • In winter they are dormant and will only show new growth in spring.   They still need water and light even though they are dormant.
  • Winter dormancy is a natural stage that deciduous plants go through during winter.  They are still alive even though their metabolic system slowed down and they still need to be watered regularly and need to be cared for like any other living plant.
  • Grown in seedling tray plugs.

You can use the seedlings to grow your own bonsai.  Plant the seedling in a suitable training pot until August.  You can wire the seedling alluminium wire to shape the seedling.  Do not work on the roots until August.

In Spring repot the seedling, trim the main root, spread out the smaller roots to form the best nebari (root base) and wire and bend the trunk to your own design.

The attached photos give an idea of the shape of the leaves.

Please note – seedlings will be shipped out of the seed tray wrapped in damp vermiculite and need to be planted as is on arrival into a temporary container with soil.  It can be kept in the soil till you are ready to repot it.  Ideal repotting time is from July till early September.

The photo is an example of the type and size of plant you will receive and not the actual product.  The plug that you will receive will differ from the photo.

When you receive your seedlings plant them into a suitable container.

Place in shaded area and gradually over a 3 day period move them into direct sun.  Due to the transport and the wrapping inside a dark container they will not be used to the direct sunlight and too much direct sunlight immediately will cause sunburn.

    I walked in to find out that I had to make a online purchase. Seeing the disappointment on my face the owner eventually changed her mind after she heard I travelled 40km to buy my seedlings. Thank you so much for accommodating me. I left very happy and satisfied.

    It came very well packaged. I was honestly surprised at how healthy the seedlings were. The leaves were a but flattened but that's expected with shipping. Will definitely be coming back for a few things once my seedlings get bigger.

    My 3 maple saplings travelled to Johannesburg from Cape Town. From order it took 3 days to arrive. Well packed, well taken care of and they went immediately into growing pots. Its been a week now and Huey, Dewey and Louis are doing well. Great service from Stone Lantern. Thank You!

    They are beautiful, just love my little Japanese Maples. Ordered 24. The packaging was done brilliantly. These seedlings spend four days on the courier and it was during a really hot week. All of them survived. Moved 3 of them to direct sunlight today to see how the Kalahari sun will impact them.
