My boyfriend got me this bonsai as an early Christmas gift. It is a bonsai from a grape vine that grows pinot noir grapes. Right now it is in a dormant state. I have had it for 3 days.
I live in an apartment and have no place to keep it outside (without drunk college kids destroying it). What I'm wondering is, since it is dormant, should I be keeping it near a window so it can get some light during its dormant period, or is it ok to keep it away from sunlight? It is also colder near the window, but I keep it around 70 degrees inside. Outside the weather has been around 30 degrees here.
How often should I be watering it? I have been trying to simply keep the soil moist.
Please let me know if you have any pointers, this was a really nice, unique gift and I want to take good care of it.
