Proof Bristlecone Pine makes a good bonsai

Had this one for a little over a year now. Shipped from the west coast, it spent this summer out on Block Island, got lots of rain and did not mind the soaking, although the dark brown clay container got real hot during the day. It's growing spurt started in May and is still going except slowing down now. I treat this tree as if it where a cactus ignore it and it grows. Over the late fall winter I leave it unheated 30-40 degrees and water very sparingly once every two or three weeks lightly. They like wind so inside fan good idea.
