Hello, I currently live in Hawaii, hardiness zone 11.  I love Japanese Maple bonsai, and use to grow them in Ohio. I would like to to grow one in Hawaii.  Is it possible to grow these in a warm climate if you put the tree through dormancy in the winter by putting it in a refrigerator, with minimal water and nutrients?  Has anyone tried this before or have any other ideas?
