Ficus Retusa bought at Rona (Beginnner)

Hello I was wondering if anyone had some advice to turn this into a Bonsai? Looks more like a stick in a white cup right now @__@ After buying it I researched into it and concluded it was a Ficus Retusa and I had a lot of work ahead of me if this has any hope!

Any advice would be appreciated.

What I would do is place your baby in a larger (wider) pot with light soil (research bonsai soil). You also need to place it in a place where it can get some light. Make sure the pot you choose has a drain hole.

You will have to take care of it for another three to four years before you start training your precious baby.
