Yours is a ficus green island, search the site for ficus and you should get some good info.
ficus, maple, elm, juniper, pine

I'm not really up on my species and cultivar differentiation, but "Green Island" or "Golden Gate" would require the same care. It's baby too, how may trunks does it have?

4 seem to be all off the same one and 1 seems to be growing single.

I know absolutly nothing about bonsai or the art of bonsai so any help would be greatly needed.

shaping watering and general care tips and tricks welcome.
