    False vivipary/vegetative apomixis and its appearances depend on the plant, the conditions, and just how long the traps are able to form; how big the traps get is therefore variable. Looking at the pictures though that plant seems rather etiolated, so I think we can narrow down one reason it may have died off....
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Actually it died when I accidentally let the soil get dry. A mistake that I will never make again.

    Nice plants!
    About the bonsai. If you really want to make a good looking bonsai, you should put it in the ground and let it become thicker. Otherwise it will not be looking like a tree in the wild, and that is what you want to achieve. I wouldn't go for fukinagashi (windswept) cause it is really difficult to let it make natural. The shape and nebari would be suitable for semi cascade but first it really have to become thicker.

    I would really like a thicker trunk, but putting it in the ground would put it at risk of being chopped in half by the evil ground hog that inhabits my backyard. As for changing the style, I've been working on this tree for a year now and changing the trunk that much would only result in a broken tree. Thanks for the help though.

    I see, the evil groundhog.
    The tree won't break, definitley not. I have seen people bending a tree from 4-5 cm thick with no problem. If you're really scared of bending it too far you could use raffia but with the shape you already have, you could go for semi cascade. Ofcourse you could go for fukinagashi, I don't say it is impossible it is just very difficult to create a natural effect .

    I'm gonna keep the style. It's good to know that I can bend it farther, it does seem too straight. Are there any other ways to thicken the trunk?

    There are two ways I know. Putting it in a bigger pot so you get the same effect as in the open ground. The other option is by making some cuttings in the bark. In that way the tree thinks the mucus layer is damaged an there will grow a new bit of wood. This is tricky, cause you could get an unequal trunk if you don't do it right.
    You can choose out of these two options but I would go with nr one cause it gives me a safer idea. It will take a while before you have a thickness of 3-4 cm. You can speed it up by leaving a sacrifice branch in the height. You keep that branch up there until it is around one meter and than cut it back to an eye of a branch and do it all over again and again and again until you have the right thickness and taper. If you, or another person, have a question ask me
