After putting it in a box a couple months ago it seems to be doing well. Read on a few sites that they should be pruned monthly so I figured I'd give it a bit of a trim. It's roughly 10'' tall, trunk is about an inch thick before it splits...... Couple questions. How does one encourage growth on one side of a tree? As you can see in the 1st and 3rd pictures all the new growth was mostly on one side. And should I have thinned it out more?
