Hi there, I live in Vancouver, BC and I am looking to get into the art of Bonsai. I have been researching this topic for the past 2 months. I am looking for an indoor Bonsai and think that the Ficus would be best suited for me. I was reading up on the ficus and as they are tolerant of many soil and watering and light conditions. They are known to grow great "banyan" roots naturally, would it be wise to attempt the root over rock style as a beginner? What species of ficus would you recommend? Would spring be the ideal time to purchase a bonsai? Thanks a million!
