Bonsai Ficus Tree - 15 Year Old Specimen
Impressive 15 year old Bonsai Ficus Tree. This specimen is a Tiger Bark with impressive areal roots and wide trunk. This is one of the most trainable Bonsai I have ever come across. By trimming often the size of the leaves can be reduced down to a third of their original size. With this particular tree I used copper training wire to keep the foliage tight and compact. -$150 for this living masterpiece
