Growing Apple Bonsai from Seed
Hello. This is my first post, so please bear with me. I did my due dilligence and searched for posts that could cover my question, but couldn't locate any, so here goes:
About three months ago, I decided to grow some apple trees from seed. I got several sprouts, and one survived to become a little seedling. I'd like to turn it into a bonsai, and was wondering about special considerations for growing, potting, etc. I have it in a ceramic pot with drainage hole, and semi-packed soil. I keep it quite moist as it seems to like that. It sits in a west facing window.
I realize that there are a lot of variables involved in getting a flowering, fruit-bearing tree, so I'm less interested in that and more interested in things you can do to aid early growth, when to start pruning, when to repot, etc. As I mentioned, it is only about 14 weeks old, but I'm in this for the long haul!
I have several junipers, but this is my first deciduous, as well as my first time growing bonsai from seed.
Any help would be greatfully appreciated, as any sort of success with this one little tree will translate into many more attempts! (can you tell I'm already attached to it?)
