i have recently taken my ficus benjamina indoors, as for some reason, there have been more than normal sparatic thunderstorms in my area. It seems that my ficus that was outside never had a chance to dry out, as it rained so much, so i decided to take it inside. I know this plant is a great indoor bonsai, but i am a little concerned with lighting. I have it in a corner, where there are two windows, on facing south, and one facing west. In the day, i try to open the blinds so that the light is being directed at the bonsai. The south window usually gets direct light from early afternoon to late afternoon, and the west window gets direct light from early evening until around 8 pm. I am jsut wondering if this setup is ok. I don't want to have my bonsai bake in the heat, nor do i want it to be deprived of sunlight. I know the ficus benjamina can get used to low light, but how much is too little? also, this plant is near a floor heater, is it going to be ok for when i put the heat on in the winter? I know these are a lot of questions, and may be difficult to answer,but i just want to get some thoughts so that i don't kill my tree, which is still fairly young.
