Bonsai Ficus Tree
I received a Bonsai Ficus tree in bad condition. I got it to grow healthy looking leaves, although the leaves coming from one tree trunk are beautiful and the branches and leaves coming from the other trunk are all very small and don't seem to be growing any further. Two trunks twist together and form one tree and it looks extremely odd. Can you explain why and can I fix this? Thanks so much! Diane James

If the Bonsai was in a weakened state before you received it, it may be due to poor soil, damage from poor wiring, poorly grafted branches, or inappropriate pot.
It can be difficult to correct a poorly grown Bonsai.
