Crabapple Bonsai, Ficus Bonsai

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.
