Hello, I have been interested in the art of Bonsai for a little while now and have finally decided to get into it. Me and my dad found this Ficus Religiosa in a palm tree next to a large Religiosa we had in our yard. We think it is a around 4-5 years old and was already stunted in size from where it was grown. Not sure how it got there but we got it out a couple years ago and has been in the pot ever since. Now we think it is a good start for a Bonsai but not entirely sure on the basics. As far as getting a shallower pot, pruning the branches and the roots, and potentially trunk chopping is what we have read. Really unsure and would be really appreciative of any advice. Also what is a good age to start doing all of these different techniques to get it to a smaller size. Also have a larger one that is a little bigger and looks like can be used for making others from the trimmings. Again any help would be awesome and much appreciated.
