Bonsai is the ancient Japanese art of training and pruning a tree that is growing in a small pot and therefore has constrained growth. Indoor bonsai trees make popular and unusual gifts for house plant growers looking for a challenge. There's a wide range to choose from, including a selection of beginner species that require far less maintenance. Most indoor bonsai trees are native to tropical or subtropical regions so need plenty of light, humidity and consistent temperatures. Temperate trees are best grown outside as they need a period of winter dormancy which is triggered by gradually fading light levels and temperature, which is hard to replicate indoors.

Don't be put off by the extra work required to grow indoor bonsai trees. Regular watering, feeding, repotting and pruning are essential but the results are worth the effort.
