I've been toying around with getting a Bonsai tree for quite some time and finally bought a Juniper because I've read that it is a great tree for beginners. My only problem is that I live in a dorm and it can be difficult for me to assess what and where I can put my new Bonsai tree. I have an excellent bay view window with a lot of sun Id like to put it, but it is a bay view and I do not want the bonsai drying out easily. So I feel that maybe by the edge it will be covered by the shade a little will be ok? Then at night
Id like to move it to my desk, which also has a florescent light I can use. However, being relatively new to bonsai the guides I've read suggest natural sunlight but the florescent can be used as a substitute.
I'm really looking forward to the challenge of having a nice tree and something that adds a little more to my room and hopefully I can figure out a lot more about Bonsais themselves. I also was wondering if I do not have a watering can available would a cup with small doses of water work well?
I know the saying to water twice to ensure the bonsai gets enough water I'm just nervous because I wouldnt want to over water the poor tree.
Thanks for your help!
Edit: I just realized that a Juniper would not survive I'm sorry for my stupidity =[
