Okay then! I was actually posting pretty much the same thread on a bonsai forum and apparently they do not do well as humid climes kill Bristlecone very easily by promoting fungus growth. They apparently often do not live beyond five years outside of the Rockies. Any advice on the spruce?Oh, didn't realize this was bonsai! Lol. Bristlecone might actually be a good choice, because what usually kills them is when people have them in soil that's too rich and damp and they rot. Once you're stunting it anyway and it's in a soil that dries out quickly it will have a much better shot.
