We feel that it is very important for a beginner to start with a tree which will prove rewarding in a relatively short time as one can very easily become frustrated and discouraged if there appears to be no results from all your labours of love.
Ficus natalensis (Natal wild fig) - ideal for root over rock style. It is very flexible, can easily be wired and sets in position very quickly. It is one of the few subjects that one can actually notice increasing in girth in a bonsai pot. It grows well from heavy cuttings rooting within 5-8weeks in summer.
