It looks like some kind of a juniper. However, it is much too young to do much of anything as a bonsai with it. I would suggest that it be planted out in the ground somewhere ad be allowed to grow for 2-3 years.

Mawardi,

Jim is correct in suggesting you plant this in the ground for a few years. Have you no ficus or some other fast growing trees to practice on ?

Thanks Jim and Kahimraj,
is this tree strong to live? because I had one in the past, but when I repot then two weeks later it died. I did not know why?

It looks healthy.

However, they are not native to Indonesia, and they do need cold weather as a part of their life cycle. It may struggle in your area -- especially in a pot.

Here in Florida we only disturb the roots of Junipers in the coldest time of year, usually mid January for us.

Billy,

on my side they grow for a while, 5 to 10 years and then one day you get up and find a brown corpse. The sunlight burns out the green of the dead really fast.
However, the San Jose looks as though it might have a gene for living in the tropics. I gave up on the other types a long time ago.

What I do now is buy really small ones and let them alone just to admire them. I have however one cutting of a San Jose that is still going strong. Strangely enough I repot January 2nd, so called cold period down here - chuckle.

High or What Style

I'm not so sure it's a juniper. It would help if we had a close-up. I suggest you trim back the branches to about half their length, then plant it in the ground and feed heavily. Show us a picture a year from now.
