New figus Retusa

Dear All, 

A couple of weeks ago I saw this new figus retusa online... and a couple of days later I decided to purchase it. I really liked the natural feel of the tree. It needed some work as it was kinda overgrown and many leggy branches. I will keep the shape of the tree quit round and compact.
The branches will be placed in a "out and up" way, as these trees grow in this way.

The pot itself was broken (already in the description online) so I asked the nursery - Kaizenbonsai.ukif they had a suggestion to a replacement pot. (ended up with the green you can see sits underneath the tree in the pictures.  Maybe the tree should have gone into a more ovale pot but I really like the more rectangular ones. But this glazed pot it really nice for this tree. 
It is a bit too early to repot.. so that will be done later this summer. 

Below I have posted some pictures of the tree of arrival. It was very well packed from the nursery. 

Very well boxed and in perfect condition on arrival.
