TOPIC: New to growing - after some initial advice

New to growing - after some initial advice 1 year 5 months ago #29612

Hi All

I've just bought my first bonsai tree, which is probably far from perfect I'm sure! I was hoping to get some advice on the questions below, as well as any other thing that I should know!
  • What type of bonsai is it?
  • Where should I keep it?
  • How often and how much should I water it?
  • What should I feed it and how often?
  • What pot it should it be in? (It is currently in a plastic pot with holes in the bottom, inside a ceramic pot with no holes in it)
  • Are there any special considerations which I am overlooking?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi leatherback

Thanks! I'm not very good at comparing the leaves with those in pictures, do you know what species of bonsai this is so I can search accordingly?

Yeah I'm coming to realise that there's a lot of terminology that I never knew the true meaning of! Clearly I'm not a pro like you guys!

Thanks
