  1. A common misconception about Bonsai trees is that they should be kept indoors. In fact, most Bonsai trees should be placed outside, where they are exposed to the four seasons just like normal trees are. Only tropical and subtropical plants can survive in the indoor climate of your house; where temperatures are high and stable throughout the year.
