Ficus - 'Ben'

As an early birthday present my mum bought me a small bonsai from a local supermarket (Lidl), it was very cheap at around £8. The first thing I did was to plant it in a larger pot.

Ben sat happily in the new pot but showed no real growth until mid-December when small bugs started to appear. Ben has always sat on a south facing window sill so has had the luxury of having plenty of light.

I expect Ben will remain on this window sill as it seems to be a great spot for him.

In mid-February I decided to repot Ben into a shorter pot as the large pot made him look small.
