The roots like moisture, sure, but they also need air. If you have been keeping it constantly moist, your tree likely has root rot.
You definitely need to find out exactly which type of tree you have, as some of them demand cool locations at night and during winter. For some of them, keeping them in warm rooms indoors during the winter is a death sentence.
I'd suggest a web search for 'types of bonsai trees'...and try to identify the type of tree you have, *then* consider the care you're giving it. I'd bet the temps have been too warm and/or the roots too moist.

: my husband is maticulous about watering the bonzi tree just how he read he should. we started to put it outside during the day in average of 70 degree weather. my daughter dumped sand from her sand box on the tree and since then its started to die. i got as much sand off the roots as possible but i didnt think it was that bad for it because the sand stays moist and i thought that is what you wanted for the roots. should we repot it?? how do we go about that?
