Bonsai tree growth

Zone Portland, OR | johnnie138 added on March 26, 2018 | Answered

Ok, so I planted a Pinus Aristata about three months ago to grow as a Bonsai. It sprouted just fine and seems to be healthy but after the initial growth of about two inches it stopped. Like no more growing at all. I repotted it in a normal looking Bonsai pot thinking that would help but still nothing. But again, it seems pretty healthy. Should I be worried at all? What's the normal growth I should be looking for? Thanks!

It should be growing, somewhat, vigorously. Are there any other symptoms? Do you have this in bright light? This could be responsible for slow growth. Can you provide a picture, so that I may see what the potting mix looks like, and the overall health of the tree?

thanks for the reply! There don't seem to be any other symptoms. I just watered it yesterday, but it looks dry. The soil seems moist to the touch though. I live in Oregon so I can't really have it outside right now. I obviously didn't know the proper time to plant it but it seems healthy. Right?
