Indoor bonsai tree care ; Bonsai trees for indoor and guidelines of their specific care – A common misconception about Bonsai trees is that they must be kept indoors. In fact, most of the bonsai trees should be placed on the outside where they are exposed to the four seasons as well as normal trees are. Only tropical and subtropical plants can survive in the climate of the interior of your home, where temperatures are high and stable throughout the year.
Alright, so I need a Tropical Bonsai tree. Which one?
There are several trees that you can grow indoors, but by far the most common (and easier to care for) is the Ficus bonsai. The Ficus is tolerant of low humidity and can withstand enough: a good choice for beginners.
Other popular bonsai trees for indoor environments include Crassula (jade-plant), the Ligustrum (Privet), Carmona (Fukien Tea), the Schefflera arboricola (umbrella Hawaiian), the Jabuticabeira bonsai (Myrciaria cauliflora) and Sageretia (Sweet Plum).
Why cannot maintain bonsai (non-tropical) temperate trees indoors?
The most important reason as mentioned above, is that the temperate trees require a period of dormancy (winter). During this period, the annual growth cycle ends, and the tree prepares for the next cycle to begin again in early spring. The tree starts to go numb when temperatures and light intensity decreases gradually over several weeks, which does not happen when you keep your trees indoors.
Example of a bonsai tree Ficus (fig) interior:
Care for a bonsai tree interior is different from those of the houseplants in normal vessels. The main reason is that the bonsai trees are planted in small pots and, therefore, have limited storage of nutrients and water. The most important is that tropical trees are used where there is lots of light and high humidity, conditions that are very difficult to create at home.
To summarize, make sure you select the appropriate species of trees and take into account the specific care guidelines for indoor trees, and you’ll do fine!
