Hello all. Some newbie advice needed.
Yesterday I purchased a lovely juniper bonsai. After some reading this morning I see that the dormant period is essential and living indoors will exhaust it. Next winter, assuming it makes it, I will place it on our covered back porch. But,..for the remainder of this season, do I leave it indoors, since it's half way through Feb already? The tree was living in a greenhouse right next to the tropicals so obviously it didn't go dormant this winter. I feel like placing it on the porch now might be too much of a shock since it has been very cold here for the last two months (north coast Ohio). Should I just ride out the remainder of the winter indoors and move it outside as soon the temps steady up around the high 30's and 40's? We keep our house around 65 usually.
Thanks for any info.
