Growing Bonsai indoors is a wonderful way to bring the spirit of nature close to our hearts. What people sometimes don’t realize is not all bonsai can be grown year round indoors. Many bonsai need a winter rest period of cold months. Learn the creative and philosophical art form with bonsai that will bring peace and happiness all year indoors!
