Best Indoor Bonsai Trees, Top 10 Best Indoor Bonsai Trees, and Indoor Bonsai Plants

Here is a list of the Top 10 Best Indoor Bonsai Trees and Plants in our opinion.

Just Because these bonsai trees do well inside, that does not mean that they don’t need any natural light. Most indoor plants will need a well lit room if they do not receive any direct sunlight, or at least a couple hours of direct sunlight. Either the morning or evening sun is best for a couple hours of direct sunlight. The afternoon rays from the sun are too strong for these indoor bonsai trees.

In order to have a successful indoor bonsai, you need to use a tree or plant that does not need very much sunlight. Tropical plants seem to be the best for indoor Bonsai.

Ficus Benjamina (Ficus Tree)

Ficus Benjamina (Ficus Tree)

1. Ficus Tree – Ficus Benjamina (Most Bonsai Ficus’ will do just fine indoors)
2. Jade Plant – Portulacaria Afra
3. Dwarf Umbrella Tree – Arboricola Schefflera
4. Japanese Boxwood – Buxus microphylla ‘Compacta’
5. Flowering White Jasmine – Trachelospermum Jasminoides
6. Heavenly Bamboo – Nandina
7. Chinese Elm Tree – Ulmus Parvifolia
8. Parlor Palm – Neanthe Bella Palm
9. Flowering Brush Cherry – Eugenia Myrtifolia
10. Fukien Tea Tree – Ehretia Microphylla

This list of the top 10 best indoor bonsai tree is not in any particular order. Some trees will do better in certain homes depending on the amount of natural light they receive and the temperature of the home. Most of these plants prefer a fairly warm humid climate, so if you can replicate that, your indoor bonsai tree should do just fine.

So, what do you think?
