Indoor bonsai trees need bright, indirect light to thrive. Place your bonsai near a window that gets plenty of natural light, but avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves. Most indoor bonsai species prefer temperatures between 60-75°F, but some species can tolerate a wider range of temperatures.
Watering and Humidity
Bonsai trees need regular watering to stay healthy. However, overwatering can be just as harmful as under-watering, so it’s important to find the right balance. To determine when to water your bonsai, stick your finger in the soil. If the top inch of soil is dry, it’s time to water. Most indoor bonsai species prefer a relative humidity of 50-70%, which can be achieved by placing a tray of water near the tree or by misting the leaves regularly.
Indoor bonsai can be a rewarding hobby that brings a touch of nature into your home. With the right care and attention, indoor bonsai trees can thrive and provide years of beauty and enjoyment. If you’re interested in growing indoor bonsai, start by choosing the right tree, providing proper light, watering, and care, and pruning and training your tree as needed. With a little bit of patience and practice, you’ll soon be growing your own beautiful indoor bonsai trees.
