Bought in Bonsai Europa in Manchester, October 2015 for £30. Looked to me in a good shape and not so expensive for its size (18cm). I found the same tree of the same size and also the same exposed roots (not completed yet) for 188€ in www.bonsai.de. I think it was a good deal in the exhibition.

October 2015

 R.I.P., Spring 2016

I assume that due to imperfection in temperature homogeneity inside the warmed storage  it got caught by too low temperatures. It started flowering early spring but after that sudden deterioration, leaves falling off. I tried to investigate the roots and found that it overgrew the pot many times. The roots were very dense. My incompetence to handle such roots created too much damage to them so it just died.
