Hi,

If it is only 6 months old, I would just let it grow for a few years. You need a trunk to create a bonsai. You might need to work the roots in the first year to create a nebari ( www.growingbonsai.net/nebari-creation-with-seedlings/ and www.growingbonsai.net/growing-bonsai-fro...otting-of-seedlings/ ) but I do not know the species.

This is the same species as the Flamboyant I am also growing from seed (Royal Poinciana), and it can make a beautiful bonsai in some years (it's a fast growing tree). I happen to have some seeds I collected in Brazil for a Dutch friend of this forum.

if you have never killed a tree, you are not doing bonsai
