i know that they love outdoors and should be kept outside but i live in ct and can get pretty harsh out there ( were gettin 12 inchs of snow tomorrow to lol). Would it be ok to keep him a very cool room id say close to 50-60 degrees close to a window for some light ( dosent get much northside ) but its gets a decent amount. Or should i try to keep him outside if so how should i go about it in CT at this time of year. some other facts is its a starter tree and will be pruning and cuttin him the way i want when i get it which is today, probally trim him tomorrow and try to wire, 3 year old tree. Open for all suggestions, tips and ideas. thank you ( Update ) ok i thought this would have been alot easier i did alot of reasearch and i know i have been a big pain latley. Heres pics but for what ive learned you pinch the ends with fingers and if you pinch ends that cuase back budding ? but as of now i want to try to clear him out a lil should i take out the stuff that points downwards ? on that main trunk. Also id like to take some offthe stuff off start of the branchs to make it look like a tree a little more ( i was gonna shoot for a karate kid style tree but i think that might be out of guestion since his trunk is already curved to the side ? but what happens if i remove some of the stuff closer to the trunk on the branchs , and the main trunk has some real long branchs that go off it gettin thick to i wont do it all at once but what if i cut one of those back pretty far going to harsh him alot ? Any real good tips on trimmin and pinchin that u have learned ill take becuase every place i look the tell u the same stuff. If u could give website or take min to really explain in detail i will be very very very very very apprecative.
