Bonsai trees are miniature trees that are grown in containers as a form of Japanese art. They are great for small apartments or offices that need a bit of a green touch but don't have much room for plants.

Bonsai trees can be as anywhere from miniature (6 inches tall) to large bonsai (up to 3 ft tall). Decide what size bonsai you would like before actually going out to select the plant.

When choosing a plant, look for leaf color to make sure that the plant is healthy. Then look around at the selection of plants and imagine what each plant would look like after it is pruned. It's important to visualize the bonsai.

Prune the tree to the desired shape. Wire any branches that need to be wired. Remove the plant from its existing pot and water the roots. Most of the roots will be cut before the plant is repotted into the bonsai pot. Cut away enough roots so that the root system can fit securely in the new pot with the proper amount of soil.

I dont want to Sound rude but what relevance does this have. I asked for opinions on the tree in question which to my delight I now know the species what you have told me is basically a dictionary description of bonsai lol

To me it just looks like they are trying to help. You get that on cordial forums like this... a good thing IMO.

Yes, it's possible.
Will require a very hard chop.

It's better to have new growth on the bottom than just on the top! The bottom of the trunk will thicken faster this way and you'll be able to chop the top way down! You're lucky to have found it.

Lulo - start a new thread so we don't have to go thru the previous stuff to see what was said about something else... thanks.

But right now it's really just a stick in a pot with no personality. You need to either begin styling it in about 6 wks, or put it back in the ground to develop faster, or something, but a smaller pot won't change a lot at this point.

I'm afraid you're going to stimulate new fungus or mold especially if there's any sun around. That's not the best way to do things and it's unlikely to sprout from the top anyway... more so from the sides in its own time if it wants to do it at all. If you have bottom growth, let it grow and clean away a bit of the soil once the new sprouts have started hardening, then just let them grow until you make choices about which ones to keep. At some future time (years) you can cut off the flat top of the trunk to make a more graceful slant.
