Liquidambar styraciflua, or Sweetgum, is a valuable tree found in wet river bottoms, in swamps that frequently flood, and on drier uplands. It is often the bane of some homeowners' existence because of its troublesome fruit. It's a deciduous tree that may grow 80 to 120 feet tall with a diameter of 4 feet or more. It has a shallow root system and should be planted in spring.

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Pomegranate after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
Received Pom as a house warming gift. As our first child we were unaware of how to prune. I suggest watching YouTube videos because it’s not complicated but it can be a bit complex.
Bugs are attracted to this tree. Make sure to buy fertilizer in order to produce fruit. Rich organic soil. Prepare to buy large container if not able to plant into ground. Does get pretty tall and wide.
I would buy a bug netting to protect it. Needs plenty of water and sun. Make sure to add mulch. Helps keep roots protected. Especially here in Florida .
