Any bonsai tree advice?

Postby fredek » January 18th, 2014, 10:49 am

So I'm new with this whole bonsai tree thing and I just have a few questions...
First of all, what kind of tree do I have? It has a curvy trunk with no roots showing and oval dark green leaves that are kind of shiny on top.
How often do I water it? (tag said once a week) and how do I know when it's had enough water?
How/when do I prune/trim it?
Is the fake moss on top of the soil okay?
Any other information, tips, or advice is greatly appreciated!
