Private or Boxwood are an excellent choice for a first tree. If you want a tree that will live indoors Ficus is a good choice. Above is a 2 year old Boxwood I mounted on a slab. It looks like it is just sitting on the slab but actually there are drain holes and screws holding the the tree on the slab. In 2 years I will remove over half the roots and remount the tree. Then it will start to look like a real bonsai forest.

My moves are measured in years.

That amazes me.
