TOPIC: New to the site and bonsai

New to the site and bonsai 4 months 1 week ago #37068

Hey all! I am brand new to bonsai, to the point of never triming,wiring, or repotting a tree. I have recently purcased about 8 junipers and 2 maples. I have watched about 200 hours worth of how to's and what not, but still feel lost. The issues i am having are alot, but to narrow it down, i have a couple main questions i am seeking guidance on.Keep in mind i live in southern California and i am considered zone 10. 1.) can i wire, prune, root trim, and repot now? Or is it better to wait? 2.) i have been taking online advice about watering, i havent watered for 3 days and my soil still seems wet. Should i water them? Or wait till they start to feel dry? And 3.) i am planning on growing a ton of trees from seed, anyone have a trust worthy site to purchase from they could recommend? And when would be the right time to start planting them? Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Well, welcome.

My advice would be to learn how to walk, before you start to run.
You have a number of plants. Good.
Learning how to kep these alive will be lesson 1. Wiring and repotting is only phase two. Have you grown plants before? Plants in pots?
