container First Bonchi

So a straggler is coming out of sick bay, a Scotch Bonnet that was started back with my others in late Feb. Never really took off and was just left for dead on a lower shelf of the green house. Found this ceramic pot in with a box of small planters in my Granny's garage. She dabbled in Bonsai plants, mainly junipers and Jersey shore scrub brush. Haven't done any bonsai planting in 20+ years, plant up to see future roots and one covering them to retain moisture to get thru transformation. Going for a windswept style. So here's a homage to Elva my granny. Constructive criticism welcome.

So far it's holding up well, spritzing main trunk roots and leaves along with higher humidity no visible loss. Did prune several older large bottom leaves along with a 50% root prune. Question is should the remaining larger leaves stay for now till things get established? Don't want to starve energy over form for now.
