Which is the biggest problem we see on this forum: a newbie with his hands itching to start pruning/wiring/repotting/fertilizing/shaping - and killing the plant in about 6 weeks.

Your first and main concern only is to keep the plant alive. That's all you need to do the coming weeks. Give it proper care, but otherwise, leave it alone.

I with to go as weel i want !!


Ermmm... OK, well, yeah...

The second part is classic auto correct problem hahaha

The firts part it is very clear in my mind, i dont have the experience to do all this things and much more all together.....no
Starting with watering, feeding thing, i dont want to 'burn' the tree and i dont want many changes.

I have a nice balcony to my house very light but not directly sun light and enough protection from the wind.

What do you mean exactly ?

I will not touch the tree for long time, only watering and feeding.

I mean:
Water it, give it as much light as possible, don't go crazy on fertilisers, trim when bushy, don't hard prune, don't repot it for the moment.
Let it grow.

I don’t trim for the moment
I will repot about one year later
