Hello, I like many here are new got questions. Ive read thru and have gaining much knowledge. So most of my questions are to confirm what ive read or specific to my living situation
I recieved a 6 year bonsai and love it much. Its in great condition and was purchased from a cute Japanese couple vendor. I have questions as to its care. I live in Salt Lake city, utah. Where the summers are dry and hot. Very little humidity. During the winters it gets as low as 10deg F.
To my best knowledge I should keep this plant outdoors esp during winter to allow its dormant cycle. Is that type of winter too cold for it? If not, should I keep snow off of it? If so, I was thinking of placing it in my garage. NOt heated, but its insulated and has direct sunlight thru a window. OR am I completely wrong and can keep this plant indoors?
With how dry and hot it is still here. (After all utah is still considered a desert) Should I be misting the leaves dailey? Ive been watering it, what seems to be 2x a week. Mostly based on the soil and its condition.
Thanks for any advice you hvae for a newb. I really want to add this type of thing for my life and move into more peaceful types of hobbies.
