Hello Eveyone! My name is Troy and I live in Dallas Texas. I purchased two Bonsai trees 4 days ago. One Chinese Elm and one Jade. When I came home last night and my Elm tree had a large amount of gnats flying around it. I had watered it 2 days before but not a lot. I was going to give it a little water since I didn't know when the shopkeeper last watered the tree. Then I was going to give it a few days and test the soil. So I went to Home Depot last night and found some bug spray that you can use on edible fruit trees and such and sprayed my tree down (hence why it looks wet in the pics). I hope I did the correct thing, the bugs are gone for now but I will check it when I get home.
Anyways, I was wondering if that pot is too small for the tree and if so should I replant it now or wait until Spring? It just starting getting freezing here the last couple of weeks. Won't be until March or April that we see Spring type weather. Any other general suggestions would be appreciated also, I have been reading a lot of information on the net this week and feel a little over whelmed trying to decide what is good info and what is not.
