I like to know what are the best Bonsai indoor trees and how I can grow it with less direct sunlight? Is there any grow without sunlight?

Hi

I personally do not believe that bonsai grow well indoors irrespective of what species they are.

Bonsai are living breathing plants that need sunlight to grow and survive.  Even if bonsai are kept indoors, they do need periods where they have to be outside getting sun, fresh air etc.

A ficus is usually a very hardy strong plant that may survive for limited periods indoors but ultimately may die or will never reach potential to be classed as a bonsai.

Jerry maintains his trees indoors. None of them were actually grown there.

Have you ever seen Jack Wikle's procumbens juniper? The one that has been growing indoors, under fluorescent lighting, with no sunlight, for 25 years? He brought it to our club last fall. Looked pretty healthy to me, healthier than many of my trees.
