A low-maintenance beginners bonsai tree in a pot with aerial growing roots and super shiny, dark green leaves; the Ficus Ginseng is a perfect way to add structured style to your home.
Did you know? After starting his life in China or Malaysia, by the time your tree reaches you his trunk could be 15 years old!
Water your Ficus Ginseng when the top couple of inches of soil are dry, approximately once every 2 weeks. Due to lower light levels, water him less frequently in the winter than the summer.
Place him in a bright spot away from direct sunlight, especially in the height of summer.
Trim your tree to shape it as you like. As a rule of thumb, remove 2 or 3 leaves for every 6 new ones that grow and aim to keep 2 to 3 leaves per branch.
Mist your Ficus Ginseng occasionally, especially in the winter when the air is drier.
Make sure your plant gets enough light, poor light can cause leaf drop.
Don’t position your plant in a dark gloomy corner as this could lead to leaf drop.
Be careful not to overwater your Ficus Ginseng, they are fairly drought tolerant and don’t like soggy soil.
Don’t place your tree near a radiator or in a draught as this can dry the leaves out.
Don’t worry if your plant loses a few leaves as the seasons change, this is normal but just check that he’s not getting too cold in the winter.
