I have got this Bonsai tree and i am not sure what type of
feed, is it the acid type of feed or the ordinary feed. I would also be grateful if you could tell me if i can repot the
tree into a bigger pot. Thanks for your help.



You don't say what species of tree . The type of compost depends on what type of tree your Bonsai has been made from. however if in doubt use a mix of ericaceous compost plus about one third grit or sharp sand. You should be able to repot at this time, but make sure the tree stands in a shaded place for a week or two after potting.

All good bonsai providers sell ready mixed bonsai food (liquid or pellet form) and when repotting, take advice from a good book regarding root trimming etc....
