A Parrot Beak (Gmelina Philippensis, Hedgehog) makes an excellent indoor bonsai.
They do well indoors and can be kept outdoors in warm weather (60 & over).
They like a lot of direct sun, but will survive (but may not flower) in partial shade.
Much like a Chinese Elm it should be trimmed to 3 or 4 leaves per branch for fullness. If trimmed in this way
you can expect new branching from older wood. In their native area (Philippines, Southeast Asia, India)
they go into a dormancy in the fall (October & November.) You may remove all their leaves at this time
and the new leaf growth will be significantly reduced. Leaf size can be reduced to 1/2 inch in time.
