Your indoor bonsai should be placed on a drip tray or humidity table. The drip tray will collect the water that drains from the bonsai container’s bottom. It will eventually evaporate, creating humidity and a warm environment around the bonsai. This is especially true if you have central heating on in winter. This humidity is a great thing for bonsai trees as they grow faster. You can make this even more enjoyable in winter by misting your bonsai leaves with water. Make sure the tray doesn’t spill on your furniture. Also, don’t let your bonsai siting in the water. This can cause bonsai to becoming weaker if they’re are leaving in the water.
