I recently got a ficus bonsai and I've been following instructions to keep it pruned, however, I have a few questions that I can't find information on.
I've allowed a few branches to get a bit longer than they should have and I'm a bit worried about cutting those back. If I cut them back, how will that affect my bonsai? Will the new shoots grow and continue the growth of the branches I cut back, or will that effectively be stopping the branch from growing from that point? Or would it create a point were a new branch will grow from the pruned point?
Thank you for any help.
