A 7" potted Ficus Bonsai Plant in our hand-made cream planter or cement planter.
If you are looking for an entry into the ancient Japanese art of Bonsai, a great place to start is with a Ginseng Ficus. It looks terrific and requires minimal care when compared to other bonsai.
How to care for your new Bonsai plant:
SUNLIGHT: Your bonsai will need a good amount of light. Indoors, placing it on a windowsill is a good idea. If this is not available, plant lights can aid in growing your ginseng ficus. If you take your tree outdoors during the summer, plan to place it in a spot that gets plenty of sunlight. The bonsai will not tolerate shade at all.
WATER: Water your ginseng ficus thoroughly whenever the soil gets slightly dry. Misting the plant daily is a good idea, but do not water to the point where the bonsai is dripping, or else fungal issues can occur. If your plant is in an especially warm environment more frequent watering will be needed.
HUMIDITY/TEMPERATURE: The ginseng ficus is an indoor bonsai and is not frost-hardy. It can be brought outside once temperatures are consistently above 60 F but must be kept in the sun and not allowed to dry out. Low humidity can be tolerated due to the waxy surface covering the ficus’ leaves, but it will thrive in a humid environment.
* Note: This plant is toxic to humans and pets if ingested.
