Training a ficus houseplant into bonsai.
Instead of purchasing an established bonsai..I decided to purchase a small ficus (benjamina I beleive) and train it. It has roughly nine (trunks?.) I tried to remove about 1/3 of the lower branches to remove some of the clutter. i am confused though..not sure if i should attempt a multi trunk or take several shots at growing 1 trunk plants...If so, how would i plant them? air layering possibly? the plant is no bigger than 10-12 inches high and around 10 wide and is still in the original pot, where it will stay for some time I'd imagine. Any ideas?
