I received a satsuki azalea bonzai for Mother's Day. I have never bonzaied before, I know zilch about the skill.
But I DO know that the instructions I got with the plant will not apply to this climate. The enclosed brochure (single sheet folded) said it was an outdoor bonzai, and should be kept outdoors spring summer and fall. I DON'T THINK SO. Not with desert dry conditions @ 110 degrees in the shade. Even now in early May we have 100 degree days.
What are my chances of keeping this plant alive with 20% or less humidity? What sort of suggestions might you have for caring for a humidity loving plant in this climate?
