There you have it Jan,

I grow a few bonsai, and of course I have the usual (Japanese Maple)
acer palmetum amongst my collection.

The leaves started turning yellow yesterday.

(Although I cheat a little - they have fluoro grow lights that dont turn

further away from the Grow lights all dropped their leaves weeks
