I love bonsai since I was high school. I'm truly madly having it to be my hobby. I am bringing it to my work, since I am a teacher of junior high. A busy day with a tiring after work makes it relieve the way it must be, somehow like my children makes me happy too. But if there is a way to make it bigger before I put it in a nice pot. Please advise me what to do. To make more easy for me to raise them in such a way that I will be bigger in a short period of time.

Ahh yes padawan, there is a way to increase the size of a bonsai before putting it in a display pot! You can either plant it in the ground if it is tolerant of the weather in your climate, or you can put it in a much larger pot. When it has reached the desired size, you start the process of getting it ready for the display pot, which takes time. Root pruning and trimming back the excess growth is needed, then time for recovery after doing it. Basically it goes in a smaller and smaller pot until it finally goes in the display pot, where only the occasional root pruning and normal pinching/whatever maintenance the species needs is done.
