I got a Bonsai tree for my birthday, today, and I haven't a CLUE how to take care of it. I was told it was a White Spruce Bonsai tree.
I don't know what to do, how to water it, or anything. We don't have a gardening center, really, here in town, so I would REALLY like to get some help! Please!
I was told to spritz it with water once a day (since they like that), and then I was told NOT to water it above. I was told to put a little water in the dish you see there, only to a certain point, and then let the water vapour (from it evaporating) go into the pot. However, in the five hours I've put in the water, the level hasn't changed a BIT...so I'm sure that's not going to work, is it? I'm not sure WHAT to do. It's hot here, since it's nearly summer, and I was told Bonsai's don't like the summer heat (it gets up to nearly 40 degress C or about 100 degress F here), but they need to stay outside, most of the time. WHAT do I do, or where can I find EXACTLY HOW to take care of my plant! I want to at least keep this plant alive for however long I can!
Replies (especially for watering) would be nice NOW...I KNOW it's getting really dry!
