Question about a small jack pine tree?

It will not be happy as a year-round house plant. It needs the dormancy of winter. It will also need plenty of sun. If you do keep it inside during the growing season, you'll need to put it in the very sunniest window you can. It will need 6 hours of direct sun, minimum, to be happy.

It will be happiest outside year round. Although during the winter, you will need to get the roots some insulation. If there is a window well on your house, putting winter bonsai in there is a great way to winter them over. Then pile leaves on top. Or tuck the pot up next to the east side of your house, and pile a couple feet of leaves on them.
