I am not a bonsai expert, but I would direct you to Google and look up "overwintering bonsai". I heard a good lecture on them once, and the one thing that I retained is that SOME bonsai are made to be winter-hardy, they must overwinter outdoors if you want them to flourish - but SOME are intended to remain indoors. So hopefully, you were given info when you purchased. I don't know your zone, your location but one of the best bonsai collections in the world is at the Montreal Botanical Garden. That site might have some good advice, too. Good luck!
