Maple Maiko bonsai, the "Dancing girl"

Acer Maiko, whose full name is Acer Beni Maiko (which literally means "red ballerina" or "red-haired girl who dances"), is a splendid variety of Japanese maple with an upright and round bearing. It grows slowly with leaves slightly more dense than the other types of maple, and that at birth have a bright red color and then turn green in the summer (but still keeping a slight red border) and go back orange or dark red in autumn.
It is part of the large family of webbed maples, which in Asian countries and in particular in Japan represent a real point of reference: they are among the most revered plants thanks to their splendid colors.
The delicacy of its leaves, finely toothed and ruffled makes this bonsai a refined plant and ideal for those who want to give an oriental touch to their apartment.
It is a plant that must be subjected to some important treatments to better vegetate and maintain the liveliness of the colors: it must be placed outside, in a bright area or in partial shade (such as a balcony or terrace) avoiding direct rays of the sun that could burn the leaves, and the strong currents of air. With very cold temperatures it should be repaired in a cold greenhouse or under a roof: it suffers if they fall below 10 ° C. A bonsai maple like this requires a slightly acid and well drained soil: the ideal is a mix of universal soil with 20% of sand and Akadama.
Maiko palmate acer requires frequent waterings whenever the soil is almost dry (in summer even every day if the temperatures are high). If necessary, the leaves can be sprayed. It should be fertilized throughout the vegetative period with slow-release NPK fertilizer.
Following these tricks your maple bonsai will give you back the beautiful color of its foliage in autumn, which will last for a few weeks, making you fully enjoy the passage of the seasons.
