Ficus Ginseng Bonsai

Ficus Microcarpa

Regular price £17.00 £0.00

The Ficus Ginseng is a Bonsai tree that sports a hefty aerial root. It's the perfect Bonsai for beginners - robust, hardy and beautiful to look at. With this size trunk, the plant is over 15 years old already - the Yoda of plants. Water only when the surface of the soil is fully dry.

I have a bulbous trunk, like a miniaturised tree. My leaves are small, glossy and oval-shaped.

Small: Growing pot size: 12cm. Overall plant height including growing pot: 30-35cm

Large: Growing pot size: 24cm. Overall plant height including growing pot: 45-55cm

Pets: Keep away from nibbly pets

Useful to know:

Origin

I come from South Asia: India and Malaysia, specifically.

Height/Growth

In the wild I can grow into a fully grown tree. In your house, you can keep me small or let me grow tall.

Light

I prefer bright, indirect light but I can tolerate shade. Too much light and my leaves will burn.

Water

Water me when my soil starts to dry. I like moisture but be careful not to give me too much.

Temperature

I like warmth so don't let me get below 16 degrees for long, and please keep me away from draughts.

Feeding

Give me a little fertiliser a couple of times over the growing season.

Grooming

Trim me to maintain my quirky shape but be careful of my sap as it might irritate your skin.

Care

The trick with me is giving me just the right amount of water.

Toxicity

Keep me away from children and pets.

Fact

I'm also called an Indian Laurel, because of my country of origin.
