hi all!
Just picked up my first tree late Spring of this year. Unfortunately i can't find a pic of when i first received it, but it was a lot bushier, lol. I've been keeping it trimmed as shown (most recent) and I am wondering if i'm leaving enough foliage? It is an indoor plant and I keep it beside my poison dart frog/bromeliad tank where it receives plenty of plant-light.

Any feedback is helpful! I water it daily, and keep it fertilized. Overall, is seem healthy but i want to ensure i'm not keeping it trimmed too much for long term health.

thanks!

sorry for the unflattering light pic, lol. it does look nicer in person.

If you share a picture it will be easier to assess.

Your plant is a Carmona, a NZ Teatree is a completely different species.
Some people call it Fukien , but the fact is, it 's showing a very sparse foliage and looks weak. Not very easy species to keep indoors. Give it plenty of sunlight and airflow.
