This a nice ficus bonsai that I've been training for about 5 years. It's well established and in a heavy, speckled blue bonsai pot (7 by 9 by 2 inches) and, ike most ficuses, it has a very nice spreading shallow root system. I keep it outside during the summer (may to october) and inside during the winter in my neck of the woods. If you don't live in a tropical climate you should do the same. The trunk is 1.25 inches thick and this species of ficus has naturallysmall leaves and twisted branches giving it the look of an old tree.
