Feeder roots are extremely narrow roots that are excellent for sucking up all of the dainty nutrients in the soil. Since we've a little pot, the bonsai is going to need all the nutrients it can get. Never cut a lot more than A of the roots during the time off.

Place some drainage displays within the holes in the pot so you can keep your bonsai tree in place, and put in a wire. Fill the bottom of the newest pot with rough ground. This ensures that the pot can be left by water but the finer land stays in. Subsequent to the coarse ground add the finer soil.

Place the Ficus Ginseng in the pot so that it says in cut and place of any excess wire and wrap the wire across the trunk. Fill the pot with finer earth and make sure there are not any air pockets in the land. The air effectively killing your bonsai tree and can cause the roots to dry out.
