&tI recently bought a ficus "bonsai" from Ikea and have a few questions about it. After doing a bit of research, I've discovered the amount of work and planning that goes into growing a bonsai and feel as if my tree will never be a respectable bonsai. I have no idea where and by who(m) it was grown (it says ;Made in USA" on the label) nor any idea how old it is. It is currently in a plastic flower pot and I am considering repotting it in a proper bonsai pot, but am not sure if I should put the tree through that stress just yet (I just brought it home two days ago). So I guess what I'm getting at is this:
Should I even try with this tree, or order from a trusted grower online?
If I should continue with this tree, should I repot it anytime soon, or wait until it has acclimated to its new environment? Should I also wait to begin pruning/wiring it?
I could come up with more questions, but, as this is my first post, I'll wait before asking any more.
