Hey everyone,



I bought this small guy from Erik Wigert at Wigerts bonsai. It stands around 4 inches tall and has a little over an inch trunk. My plans are exactly as follows:



Here is the front of the tree:

The problem I see is with the surface roots. They're mostly non-existent, and those that are there are big and ugly looking. So, I would like to cram some sphagnum moss in the area in red to get new roots growing:

Top of the tree (check out the soil!):

And a better shot of the tree from the front:

Opinions?

Sadly I do not. I think I gave it to a friend who was just starting out with his tropical collection. What happened from there though.....:confused:
