Description How to Grow Delivery

Perfect for Bonsai beginners, this Ficus macrocarpa ‘Ginseng’ is a good introduction to this Japanese living art as Ficus species are trouble-free houseplants - just ensure that you give it a spot in bright, indirect light and feed it with liquid fertiliser during the growing season. The dome of glossy, oval leaves sits proudly on a crown of amazing swollen roots. A delightful miniature tree for the home or conservatory. Ultimate height: 1m (39in). Ultimate spread: 50cm (20in).

Please note: Ficus species are harmful to pets if ingested.

Place your Ficus macrocarpa bonsai in a bright spot indoors, in sun or part shade, away from draughts. Water using room-temperature water when the top of the compost begins to dry out, avoiding letting the roots sit in water. The plant will also enjoy being misted. As it grows, trim the foliage as necessary to keep the desired shape. Repot into a slightly larger pot every 1-2 years using a free-draining potting mix.
