Hey, I just got a tree for my sister as a Christmas present (got the idea from a friend), and it arrived a bit earlier than I had expected. I really don't know anything about bonsai, but I need to keep this thing alive until Christmas.
I assume that since it's winter time (and only a month until Christmas) I don't need to bother cutting or fertilizing it. From a cursory reading of this forum, I see that watering is important and so I plan to check the moisture each day and water it when necessary (apparently this is about once a week during the winter--is that correct???).
Main question: do I need to keep it cool? My room stays about 70 degrees Fahrenheit, but I've seen advice about keeping it cooler. Is this necessary?
Also, it's still in the starter plastic pot, and I really didn't want to transfer it out yet because my sister would love doing that and I don't want to spoil her fun. Is it going to be ok for another month?
Apparently it's a "Juniper Procumbens Nana," and it's 3 years old, if that helps any.
Thanks in advance!
