Bonsai trees make wonderful gifts. This is Christmas/New Year/Valentine season and there are many flowering bonsai. Of course, not all bonsai are producing flowers in February, but some do such as the camellia. Others flower at various time of the year just as their larger relatives do. It is so interesting to see these miniature versions of the flower. It almost seems unreal.
All bonsai trees need plenty of light, therefore they do best outdoors. However, obviously some areas are just too cold in the winter so some types of bonsai must be brought indoors during that time. It is not my intention to present details about this, just to say that the trees do need to be given as much light as possible. Also, they require a dormant period.
