The apex died back on the crab so this is my attempt at wiring up a new one. Maybe it was the hard winter. I can't be sure but it never died back before this year. I also currently have it growing in a larger plastic pot as opposed to a smaller, ceramic bonsai pot. The plant seems to grow the same amount either way, however, it has only been one year in the larger pot.
This little ficus was rooted from a cutting taken about two years ago. It grows very slowly in this tiny pot so I might look for something a bit larger. I grow this one indoors. It never goes outside ever.

It looks like spring has sprung. Most of my trees are pushing leaves like crazy. The first one I believe is an American Elm. The second one I believe to be a Callery Pear. The pear was just repotted into this shallow rectangular tray.

Here is an earlier photo of the same tree. As you can see it has been shortened quite a bit over the years. I wonder what it could look like down the road if I trunk chop to the third or second branch.
