Repotting My First Bonsai, The Bonsai Zone, Dec 2021


With a high of 13 C (55 F) today, I’m outside repotting my very first bonsai, my Ficus microcarpa that I grew from a seed 30 years ago.
I’m taking it out of the 3D printed pot so I can repair the pot over the winter.
The new pot my tree will go in was a gift from Mari and Jerome from the YouTube channel “We are The Bonsai Supply”.
