New to this.
Hi. I just bought a small sized fukien tea (1cm-1.5 cm. trunk width, 20 cm height). This is my first bonsai, and I do not want to mess anything up. I also bought a 7"x5" with a depth of 3" pot. I have not yet transfered from the original plastic pot my fukien tea came in. Do you have any tips for transferring.
(as of now, I will just be filling the pot about half full with soil, and placing the Tree in while spreading it's roots, and then filling the rest of soil over it. I will be sifting the soil as well.)
I bought Wee Tree Farm Bonsai Soil, and some Kyoto Moss Spores for ground cover.
as of right now, I will be keeping it indoors, in an upstairs, room next to a window facing south. Is this a good idea? The room gets hot in the summer. Will this be bad? How close do I put my Bonsai to the window.
I will water about everyday, letting the soil get somewhat dry before adding more water.
How often should I fertilize? When people mention "feeding your bonsai", does this refer to fertilizer?
Any other tips or ideas would be very helpful.
