Ficus benjamina

(Ficus benjamina "too small")

I won this ficus at our August 2005 bonsai club meeting! I'm not sure yet what I plan to do with this one, but I was really anxious to have a ficus to play with. I like the ones with aerial roots.

In the Spring of 2006, this one will have to have its roots trimmed, and go into a smaller pot! But for now, it seems to be doing fine. On August 26, 2005, I just trimmed a little; here's the "after" view:
