Bring Japanese serenity into the home with this elegant Bonsai Ficus. Ficus species are one of the most popular choices for beginner enthusiasts as they are among the easiest to look after.

Over time the thick trunk twists into sculptural forms and sports unusual aerial roots whilst supporting a neat canopy of pleasingly glossy, rich green, pointed leaves. This beautiful, miniaturised tree grows out of a Japanese-style, shallow ceramic saucer. It makes a stylish accessory in small spaces and a charming gift for those starting out on their Bonsai-growing journey. Pot size: 13cm. 

Height Up to 30cm (12in)
Spread Up to 30cm (12in)

These Bonsai Trees are best grown in a bright position indoors, away from the direct glare of strong sunlight. Avoid positions that are close to radiators and doorways where they will be affected by cold draughts. Generally, these trees will prefer a cool room such as a spare bedroom, home office or conservatory. In summer, they may be gradually acclimatised to outdoor conditions, and subsequently moved onto the patio if you prefer. Be sure to re-acclimatise them to indoor conditions again in early autumn, so that they can be kept frost free indoors during winter.
Bonsai trees have a small volume of compost at the roots – this can quickly dry out, so regular watering is needed to maintain reliably moist soil. Take care to drain plants well after each watering. Feed Bonsai regularly from March to September with a proprietary fertiliser. Bonsai trees should be repotted every two years or whenever necessary to prevent them becoming pot-bound. Regular pruning and training of Bonsai is an essential requirement to keep them small.
