Training A Young Maple

June 6, 2019

Hello! I'd like your opinions on this young Beni Hime I just received through mail order. The two branches are growing lopsided at almost 90° (degrees) angle. Is it possible to train the branches to go upright? This is my first maple plant, so I'm still learning.

My second question is the branches and leaves all have black tips and feel dry and brittle. Does it look healthy to you? Would you accept a plant like this? Or am I better off returning this and get a new one? The seller is not responding to my inquiry so I'm hoping you guys can help me. Thanks...
