can you keep japanese maple bonsai indoors?

Posted by Bonsai Care on Mar 25, 2009

My boyfriend bought a japanses maple that is about 2 feet tall, still very young.. and we kept it indoors all winter, we were scared that it would die in the cold.

also, it has little seedlings growing in it's pot, is it at all possible for me to take one and tend to it so that it would stay a tiny indoor bonsai?

Was this a mistake? It is beginning to warm up now, so should we bring it back outside?

Its a bonsai, so it wont get much bigger. iT DOESNT NEED MUCH WATER OR SUNLIGHT, (caps lock, sry). Its pretty much an indoor platn can live outside. Basicly, chose which is better for your decorationg scheme.

A tree is a tree. It should be kept outside ALL year round. Bringing it indoors can be more stressful than good, it's like taking it to a warmer country which is shrouded in darkness like a cave…

Have the seedlings got identical leaves to the maple? If not they are probably weeds.

a maple needs to go through fall and lose its leaves and go dormant otherwise it will die from lack of rest. if you want an indoor bonsai get a tropical tree, ficus are great indoor bonsai but still would rather being outdoor in the summer. with proper care the little ones can stay little, research "mame bonsai" on the web
