Indoor Bonsai are tropical plants that are perfectly suited for indoor conditions. It may take a few weeks for your bonsai to adjust to its new environment and it is normal for it to shed up to 20% of its foliage during this period. To ensure optimal growth, place your indoor bonsai near windows that face southeast or west for exposure to sunlight. If you do not have a sunny spot, use a grow light. During the summer months, outdoor placement on a patio or deck will be ideal for your bonsai, with morning sun and afternoon shade being the best exposure. Make sure to bring it back indoors when temperatures fall below 55 degrees and never allow it to freeze.


Proper watering is crucial for maintaining a healthy bonsai. Water your indoor bonsai every two to three days, with variations depending on the tree species. Consult the information tag attached to your bonsai for specific watering instructions. Watering with ice cubes is a convenient method. Ensure that the soil is thoroughly wetted, without letting the bonsai dry out. A humidity tray filled with decorative stones not only captures excess water but also creates the necessary humidity around your bonsai. When your indoor bonsai is outdoors, water it daily, using a fine-spray nozzle watering can or hose attachment to thoroughly soak the soil and allow water to run out of the drain holes. While misting the foliage is recommended, it is not a substitute for watering. Regular trimming is also important for maintaining a beautiful bonsai shape. To learn about trimming and wiring techniques, consider purchasing an instructional book.


It’s necessary to repot your bonsai every 4 to 5 years when its root system becomes pot-bound. Repotting should be done in late spring or early summer, using good bonsai soil to allow proper drainage. Wait at least one growing season after receiving your bonsai before repotting to ensure that it is well-established. For specific instructions, refer to a bonsai book.


Fertilizing is essential for bonsai growth. Use water-soluble or time-released fertilizers as directed, and slow-releasing organic fertilizers for mature bonsai specimens.


Bonsai, like any other plant, can be prone to insect and disease attacks. Regular inspections are crucial to keep your bonsai healthy. Spraying the trunk and foliage periodically can help keep it clean. If any issues arise, most garden centers have treatment products available.
