Beginner Chinese Elm trimming
I was recently gifted a 12yr old Chinese Elm Bonsai, I am very excited to get into the art and care of Bonsai but after reading some how-to's and forum posts I am beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed with the depth of knowledge and care that goes into Bonsai. I have only had the tree for about two months now and it seems pretty healthy, however I have yet to repot it and it is kept indoors except on the weekends when I bring it home to get some sun/wind but I am careful not to shock it. There are a few things I am unsure about, first it seems to me that all the small branches look very messy should I trim these now (early spring in Florida) or wait? Also it looks like it is growing out of the pot or the top of the root system is not completely covered does this look normal?
