Cryptomeria Japonica Bonsai

Over 4 years ago i planted a few Cryptomeria Japonica (Japanese Cedar) seeds so i could have a go at making a bonsai tree. Now the tree has been growing in a bonsai pot and looks healthy but does anyone know how old a tree has to be before you start to shape it.

    Hello Voyagerxp

    Thought this might be of interest to you ; they're obviously stunning if done correctly . Pretty skilled technique by the look of it image.

    Very nice tree!

    You can start shaping it now.

    It is not difficult but there are certain techniques etc.

    Internet,books etc will help.

    Do you have a bonsai club near you,they could advise?
