Not that I would keep it indoors, but I was just curious. Can it be an indoor tree? And, if not, ARE ther any junipers capable of being grown indoors? I know some are tropical, but are any 'indoorable'?
Karate kid is most emphaticly NOT a species of juniper, Nor is it a style of bonsai.
Where are you reading this? I would be very very doubtful of the vast majority of claims of long term indoor juniper survival.
The short answer is no, It needs
a dormancy and the light would be inadequate also. Read this: https://www.bonsai4me.com/SpeciesGuide/Juniperus.html
If you have exceptional
skills and are VERY VERY
lucky You might
manage to keep it alive for a year or two.
NONE of the people who rely upon bonsai for their income grow them indoors...If THAT tells you anything.
