    bonsai is the art to grow and maintain a plant by trimming training of leaves and pruning of roots to fit in that same pot for the next 100 years

    bonzai is when you lose your head due to sharp blade called the Katana

    It looks healthy but unkempt.
    The trunk is really thick . I was concerned the roots would crack the pot and kill it off

    Cheers.

    If you wish to not go the bonsai way you can pot it on and let it grow bigger.

    Thank you . I just want the plant to survive. Plant needs a trim and a tidy up. So if repotted. Do i use the old soil and simply top up with compost..
