Rhododendron indicum is a colorful bonsai that thrives indoors and out. When kept indoors, place in a sunny area, near windows facing southeast or west. It takes several weeks for indoor bonsai to acclimate to a new environment. During this period, your bonsai may shed up to 20% of its foliage. This is normal. Exposure to sunlight will enable your bonsai to replace foliage it may have lost while adjusting to its new environment. If you do not have a place for your tree to receive adequate sunlight, the use of a grow light is recommended.
