Hello to all on listserv. I recently purchased a cascading juniper (~7 years old). Beautiful tree. Below are two important questions, the responses of which will start me on the right track (at least until I finish my Bonsai books).
1. Do Bonsai trees require direct sunlight, or direct light at all? I currently have my Bonsai close to the window, but it never receives direct sunlight. I wonder if it would be better to keep it where it would recieve direct flourecent light?
2. I have been soaking the pot in a bowl of water for 5 minutes every couple days. DOes the Bonsai require additional watering or another method?
Thank you in advance for any responses received. I look forward to a very fun and interesting hobbie.
