I received a Ficus Nitida Bonsai as a gift recently. I love it, but have no idea how to care for it. It is pretty big with lots a leaves. The brand on it is BloomRite. It is in an essentially rectangular pot about 10x8 inches and 3 inches deep. The tree is about 19 inches talls from the top of the pot to the tallest branch. The lower part of the trunk is coverd in lovely green moss and it appears to me that some thin branches have been brought down and are anchored under the moss somehow. I cannot see the soil in the pot becasue there are little pebbles covering it. The pebbles do not seem loose at all so I haven't actually touched the soil. The instructions say the following:
Keep moderately moist.
Medium indirect light indoors to full sun outside.
62-90degrees fahrenheit. Does not like drafts.
But that's all it says. I need to know HOW AND HOW MUCH TO WATER.
I live in Fresno, CA and the summers are hot. Today will probably reach about 101 degrees fahrenheit. So I know I have to keep in inside, where it will be 78-80 degrees all the time. But, will it get enough light if I keep it by a window?
Now, I assume that the tree is fully grown, but I don't know. Will it continue to grow? Do I need to prune it? Will it need to be repotted?
I think that is it for now. I appreciate being able to ask these questions. Thank you!
