use, i bought this from bonsai outlet a year ago, it needs more space.

Well, use a good draining bonsai soil and probably not a very shallow oval pot.
Any pictures?

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

Probably because it is impossible to answer the question.

I have read that a golden rule of pot size should be about 80% of the foliage. And maybe a 2in deep pot, really depends on what your wanting
