Shortening leaf stalks

Early spring removing of the thin protecting layer of stalk sheet at the base of the leaves, causes the stalks to dry early when the winter protection layer is gone. It is a very important technique to Mame and Shohin-Bonsai, and slows the growth and keeps the leaf stalks shorter.

The sheets can be removed with the help of a pair of tweezers.
