Assuming you mean Haematoxylon campechianum (logwood) I can find no bonsai info on it, though there is a lot of pharmacological information on the web dealing with this tree, much of it no doubt arrant nonsense. It does appear to have some medicinal use, however.

If you mean some other plant, please give us the Latin name.

Ummm. Was something wrong with the link Dorothy posted? It looked to be quite informative to me. Sheesh!

Clubsodajohn,

does this help ? - Note, I am in the Caribbean [ West Indies ]

Placement - full sun

Watering - keep moist

Pruning - nothing special, once you have the shape you desire - pinch new growth back to 1 leaf after say 6 to 10 leaves have formed.

Soil - inorganic 50 to 75 % - organic - compost / cocopeat

Propagation - never done this

Fertilizing - one month after re-potting I use a weak mixture of lawn fertilizer, as my placement is full sun, once a weak. With the rainy season I use nutricote [ osmocote type fertilizer.]

Temperature - can't help you here.

An easy tree to grow, so far nothing special, see if you can get the attention of the Puerto Ricans and Mexicans on the list for further information.
Later.

It is not cold hardy.

If you didn't protect it this last week it is dead.

As a bonsai subject it is new on the scene. It is native to Mexico and also found in Puerto Rico.

Eric Wigert of Fort Myers, Florida is a major importer.

Although I don't have one, yet, I do know it has thorns.

The BSF Convention in June near Orlando is having a workshop session with this tree.
