Your local climate will dictate the potting schedule of your bonsai. These trees like having their roots rearranged when repotting. After re-potting, your bonsai needs to be placed in a shady location for three to four weeks. This bonsai can grow in a variety of soil conditions including bare mineral soil, sandy soil, volcanic ash, calcareous soil or limestone soil, but it grows best in loose, fertile, well-drained, slightly acidic soil.
This particular bonsai is susceptible to spider mites. Inspect your tree weekly for specks of red on the needles. This is an indication of spider mites.
You will need to do significant pruning between late fall and early winter to prevent or minimize sap bleeding. After you cut, apply putty cut paste to the edges of each exposed wound. To avoid stress to the plant, place it in shade for about a month after pruning.
