indoor trees?

thedarkness(5)February 16, 2013

hi there,
i want a tree for my basement room that gets a little bit of sunlight during the morning, i was wondering what trees if any would grow nicely. i have a few apple seeds sprouting and growing, but i dont know how well they would work inside.

Any kind of fruit tree won't be well adapted to low light conditions even as an ornamental. I'd suggest something like a Norfolk pine.

Temperate zone trees require a cold dormant season in order to survive. Even species which have been trained as bonsai are kept outside.

You need to visit the Houseplant Forum and ask for some good tropical species.
