Winter
by: Anonymous

Thank you for your time and information but i don't understand why you want us to put it in the ground for the winter. If it's not ever going to adapt to the summer outdoor temps, why then?

As a hardy plant, they must undergo a winter dormancy. Keeping it as an indoor plant won't allow it to go dormant and it will eventually die. Just bury the pot into the soil, don't plant the tree out in the ground. I'll be waiting for updates!

Die

There's no irrigation in the yard, no grass, just stone,wont the plant die without regular watering?

Is it dry in the winter where you are? I suggest a good drink now and again, but you won't need to keep it soaking wet. Trees go dormant in the winter, and once it loses its leaves it won't need much water.
