There is one important consideration though. Ficus bonsai trees do not like drafts making it important to avoid putting your Bonsai near a drafty window or vent. It will dry out the foliage. Variations in temperature will increase leaf dropping. It takes several weeks for an indoor bonsai tree to acclimate to a new environment. During this period, your bonsai may shed up to 20% of its foliage. Please we aware that this is normal.
Place your indoor bonsai near windows facing southeast or west. Exposure to sunlight will enable your bonsai to replace foliage it may have lost while adjusting to its new environment. If you do not have a place for your tree to receive adequate sunlight, use a grow light. Indoor bonsai tree will love to be grown outside on a patio or deck during the summer months. The ideal placement is where the bonsai receives morning sun and afternoon shade. But remember to bring back in your bonsai indoors when night temperatures fall below 55°F.
