Picked up this little beauty last weekend at a convention in a much more temperate climate. Temperature here is probably 20° less. I do believe that I kept it inside at night because I did not want to shock it but it was still outside during the day however I may have left it outside one night under cover. I don’t believe I let it dry out but a couple days after I returned to Oregon the leaves seem to dry out and drop. Interestingly the trunk stayed quite damp for three or four days without me watering it. Made me believe that something was going on with the tree and did not want to absorb the water. I did give it a spray with liqui-cop after noticing some white particulate on the leaves, trunk, and soil. I ended up repotting it today because I wanted to inspect the roots and I wanted to inspect the roots and it did not look like the pot allowed for good drainage. I did not do any real root work but did notice nice white tips on the root ends. I will plan on keeping it inside this winter to baby it unless that is I’ll advised. Is there something that I am missing? Just getting into shohin so hopefully not starting out on the wrong foot.
