Thanks Milky and mookins

I've never heard of a Tatarian maple (Acer tataricum) so I've just had a gander on google. Nice tree!
If you want to take a shortcut growing your maple as a bonsai, grow it in the ground for two or three years before transferring to a pot. Doing this will help to thicken the trunk of the tree. Don't prune it heavily during this time.

The odd shaped thing next to the pot is a carpet of lichen that was growing on the surface of the pots soil.
Proves there's no polution as lichen will only grow in clean air.
