Hi Nina,

This is much better Applause

Don't cut lowest brunh.. Nono If you cut them .. you don't get new brunches at lower level never again Rolling Eyes and this brunches is very important for bonsai..

My advise is now to take care of them.. and don't do any cutting at least 3-4 months.

Hello,
The Ficus is also known as the Rainforest Fig, which makes a great choice for Bonsai. Although figs are primarily tropical plants growing in the jungles of Asia, hundreds of species exist that can be grown outside of this type of environment.
The leaves of the Ficus are unusual in that very small flowers are encased in the fruit that develops, which then is born in the axils of the leaf. While the development of fruit is not common, the Ficus still makes a good option for Bonsai.
For the best results, you need to provide this plant with lots of sunlight although it also does well in partial shade. The soil should be rich in humus, moist, and well drained. Since the Ficus does not do well in harsh conditions, you need to bring it indoors when the weather turns too hot and shield it from cold wind and frost.
Care
• Make sure you do not over water or the roots will rot
• This particular plant will need to be pruned throughout the year, cutting back to three leaves
• Since the leaves tend to be large, you can help reduce their size by defoliating at the end of the summer. Just be sure the growing tip or sheath is removed. Then, the larger leaves can be thinned in the spring.
• If you live outside of a tropical climate, keep the Ficus under fluorescent lights inside in the winter

If you to want to get more information about the respective or any other topic you can visit bonsaioutlet.com site. I have referred the sites to too many friends and they are highly satisfied with the service level of that company.
Thanks...!
