This is a rooted cutting off my big tree which I kept in pot until last fall when a space opened up. Any metasequoias I keep in pots I put in relatively shaded locations. The only one I've lost was in a pot in tbe sun back in the day and I have a theory about hot roots. Anyways? They just grow too fast in the sun. Given its life in the shade until this year and the lighter color of its foliage I'm concerned its actually burning a little. Is this an issue for normally sun tolerant species which were growing in shade I assume? The is a green ash stump about fifteen feet away. Its roots are no doubt still pumping and beginning to rot if that isna concern.
