Hi, i have a 25 year + old benjamin ficus tree in a pot in my house, �that i think it can be a beautiful bonsai tree with some work. The question is if you can help me decide on what style to chose.

Look at that base! WOW! I would suggest you look into bonsai styles to help get you going in the right direction.

This website is great...but, I've also found amazing information on specific bonsai at For they have areas for specific bonsai styles as well as breaking the forum down to varieties such as conifer,flowering,fruiting and such.

Someone more knowledgable would be able to help you. To let you know how well these handle root reduction and such. Best time to do so...and so fourth.
