When you trim the thick wooden like roots back the plant to cultivate feeder roots provokes. Feeder roots are extremely narrow roots that are superb for sucking up all the tasty nutrients in the earth. Since we've a small pot, the bonsai is going to need every one of the nutrients it can get. Never cut over A of the roots at that time off.

Place some drainage screens over the holes in the pot in order to keep your bonsai tree set up, and put in a wire. Fill the underparts of the the new pot with rough ground. This guarantees that the pot can be left by water but the finer land stays in. After the ground that is coarse add the finer ground.

Put the Ficus Ginseng in the pot and wind the wire around the trunk therefore it says in place and cut of any excess wire. Fill the pot with finer earth and make certain there are no air pockets in the land. The air can cause the roots to dry out and effectively killing your bonsai tree.
