Description How to Grow Delivery

The ideal introduction for anyone with an interest in bonsai, and doesn't know where to start! Ficus microcarpa 'Ginseng' bears thick aerial roots that appear to look more like trunk wood, giving the illusion of age on a relatively young plant. The gnarly stem supports a dense crown of glossy, dark green leaves. It's a forgiving plant, unlike some of the more tricky bonsai, and will thrive year-round in the home if kept out of direct sun and watered moderately.

One plant in a 9cm pot. Height: 20cm (8in).

Please note: As with many houseplants, Ficus microcarpa is harmful to pets if ingested.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Height Up to 20cm (8in)

1 x 9cm Potted Plant (20cm tall) (KF4189)

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.
