Keshitsubo are the smallest kind of bonsai tree, sometimes called "poppyseed size" in English. They're carefully maintained at heights of 3-8 cm.
I forgot to mention that in Japanese, they're nicknamed "mame bonsai". Mame means bean. Because they're cute and tiny little beans.
@InvaderXan it must be very hard to keep them at this size!
@daniel_bohrer Yes, I imagine so. I've never kept bonsais, so I'm curious actually!
@InvaderXan I think it all comes down to the pruning and root boundedness in the pot. And maybe also starting with a branch that already has a good diameter to make a trunk, e.g. through a branch cutting, or air layering
@InvaderXan … at least that's what I did for this field maple, but it's only five months old now. I hope it will turn out well ^^
@daniel_bohrer Oh, very nice. Good luck with it!
