help in pruning my banyan

Hi, i have a banyan sapling which s 6 months old and about 1 1/2 feet tall. It has started developing aerial roots near the base. I would like to know how to induce branching of the tree. As i don't want it to develop as a tall bonsai. Should i start pruning ththe leaves???

Re: help in pruning my banyan

Welcome to the forums!

I wish I could help you, but I don't have any personal experience with a Banyan bonsai. However, if you do a websearch using "Pruning Banyan tree bonsai", quite a few sites come up that look extremely helpful.
