Indoor bonsai are not hardy. These bonsai must be protected from low temperatures in the cold season.
Most indoor bonsai (such as Fig tree, Jade tree, Sageretia, Fukien tea (Carmona), Privet) are imports from the tropics and subtropics of Asia. Temperatures above 10°C prevail in winter and indoor bonsai from these areas do not need to be frost hardy. Such indoor bonsai can not be "hardened" either. You need a bright but frost-free location in winter. Indoor bonsai trees can be placed outdoors in the summer.

Care of indoor bonsai
Light and temperature
Indoor bonsai, like all plants, need light. A lot of light. They perform photosynthesis to gain energy. In a normal apartment, the supply of light for indoor bonsai is low. If the temperatures allow in spring-summer indoor bonsai should be placed outdoors. In winter, when outdoor location is not possible, choose a very bright window place for your bonsai.
The metabolism of bonsai is temperature dependent, i. high temperature = high metabolism. High metabolism goes hand in hand with high energy consumption. In a heated room is accordingly the energy consumption of the bonsai tree high. At the same time, energy production is low due to the low light in the apartment. That's a problem: High consumption - Low energy production. Help your indoor bonsai through a very bright and at the same time cool location.
Especially indoor bonsai from tropical areas are used to a high humidity and need it. Our apartments are too dry. The humidity in a normal apartment is much lower. However, you can increase the humidity for your indoor bonsai by placing the tree on a drip tray for bonsai pots filled with some water.
Bonsai are living things. They have specific needs. And the specific needs vary, depending on the environmental conditions. An indoor bonsai in summer on the balcony needs much more water than the same bonsai in winter in the room. On hot days more needs to be poured. Also on windy days. Important when watering your bonsai: Most trees do not like too much water or too little. The middle is usually right. Tip: Just lay your flat hand on the surface of the earth. If it feel damp it does not usually need to be poured.
Fertilization only makes sense if the tree can do something with the bonsai fertilizer. In winter, when your indoor bonsai hardly grows due to lack of light, they hardly need fertilizing. All in all, you can say: fertilize indoor bonsai in the growing season from March to September. But then properly. The usual liquid bonsai fertilizers and organic solid bonsai fertilizer like Biogold or Hanagokoro are practical, safe and effective. It does not matter which one you take. They are comparable.
