Do bonsai need direct sunlight?
The answer to this question depends upon what plant has been used for the bonsai, so there is no one correct answer. Many different plants may be used for bonsai. Generally however, it is safe to say avoid direct sunlight. Bright, indirect lighting is sufficient. The bonsai plant is not in a natural environment nor in best growing conditions. Due to the very confined pot which stunts the plant, bonsai need more attention than other houseplants, with careful attention to both watering and lighting. The stunted environment in itself causes some stress to the plant . Direct light may actually cause the plant more stress and may cause the plant to dry quickly and excessively. As far as watering, try this: submerge pot (only if with drainage holes) in lukewarm water up to the top of the container. Allow to soak submerged until bubbling stops (just a few minutes). Remove the pot and drain then redisplay. Watering in this way allows the plant to soak up only what it needs, and excess is drained away. Repeat when soil a 1/2" below the surface feels dry. You'll actually water less often this way. All good bonsai should be in pots with drainage holes. If you have one without drainage holes, consider re-potting. Until then, water frequently and lightly. Over watering kills more bonsai plants than does anything else.
Not direct sunlight. Light shade is best...
In order to make a bonsai mango tree, first you need to plant the mango seedlings into the soil . Then cover its roots additional bonsai soil, and it will need plenty of sunlight in order to grow.
Guinea Pigs need sunlight but you can not put them in direct sun light!!!

No, goldfish do not need to be exposed to sunlight, in fact direct sunlight can be harmful to goldfish because if exposed for a long period of time it may heat up the tank to a potentially harmful temperature. Besides, there is no need for sunlight in an aquarium since the average aquarium light works just as well and has the same benefits of being exposed to sunlight.
Hermit crabs need moderate amounts of sunlight or artificial light to keep their environment at the right temperature. Exposure to direct sunlight, however, can be deadly for them.
No definitely not. Juniper need 6 hours a day and 4 hours of indirect sunlight. They are ever green trees so need allot of sun. For indoor trees you do allot better with Ficus whether is Tiger Bark Ficus, Ginseng Ficus, or Willow Leaf Ficus. Another common specimen you see used for indoor bonsai is Chinese Elm. You can check care guides for Juniper care and other varieties of bonsai.
at least part of the day they need direct sun light
yes because they use the sunlight to create photosynthesis which is where their leaves take in sunlight for the key nutrients they need
Yes, no plants can grow without light. The lucky bamboo plant doesn't need a significant amount of direct sunlight but does prefer plenty of indirect sunlight. It's a great apartment plant for non-green thumbs.
Venus flytraps nees 4 hours of direct sunlight per day.
Yes, all plants need sunlight in order to survive. Just be careful not to give them too much direct sunlight or they will dry up from too much heat. Cacti are probably the longest-lasting plants in direct sunlight because they are desert plants and are made to survive extreme heat.
No, direct sunlight will not damage a money tree plant. Money trees thrive in full sun and partial shade; outdoor plants do not need direct sunlight. However, plants grown indoors will do best in full, bright light.

No, poinsettias (Euphorbia pulcherrima) do not need direct sunlight. Specifically, poinsettias need high intensity sunlight. But they tolerate that intensity from a position of light shade. They also tolerate it in a context of set temperatures (60-80 degrees F/15.56-26.67 degrees C, moist (not waterlogged) soil, and humid air.
Direct sunlight effects the earth by weakening the atmosphere.
When you have direct and indirect sunlight you might not understand it. It is actually quite simple. When you have DIRECT sunlight you have a warmer climate. When you have an INDIRECT sunlight it has a more humid or cool temperature. For an example the equator gets DIRECT sunlight most of the time. Hope this answers your question!
