I recently brought a bonsai from Japan -8yr old miniature japanese maple (acer japonicum). I am concern about the following:
A, change in temperature - I am in Central America at 5,000 feet (1,500mts) above sea level. Template all year round. So unlike Japan, the tree will not have a 'dormant' period... I guess...?
What should I expect from this change in zones and how to help the tree adjust to its new environment.
B. Is the quality of water important to water a bonsai?
Thank you for your kind replies.
