I’m prickly but nice, and I have a natural pine scent which gets stronger in the sun. I stay green all year, and prefer bright light, direct morning or late afternoon sun. During the hottest days of summer, keep me protected from direct afternoon sun. Remember, I’m an outdoor bonsai.
Give me a deep watering by submerging once every 5 days, more often, even daily, when on very hot and sunny days in July and August. In winter I go dormant, so it’s best to leave me in a cold, protected spot until spring (I’ll need temps between 20 and 50 degrees). Remember, don't bring me to a heated room in winter or I will quickly die.
