A proper drainage system must also be provided for the pot and a manured soil must be placed into the pot. Conditions for planting like sunlight, water, minerals, etc must be provided to the plantation that you have done.
In case you have chosen an indoor bonsai, you must bring it to the sunshade at least for 4-6 hours a day. Artificial indoor lights can help when manual work is not possible.
