ABOUT OUR FICUS GINSENG BONSAI
Hello, I’m Bonsai! Are you looking for a plant to bring a little Zen to your home? If so, I’m a ficus ginseng bonsai tree without a care in the world. This means I’m all about the easy life (and the easy-maintenance!), making me one of the best indoor bonsai trees for beginners. With my glossy canopy of leaves, bulbous exposed roots and miniature size, I’m a unique character who’ll bring a touch of class to your house.
My roots go far back to the time of Zen Buddhist monks, who loved the beauty and meaning they found in my simple little form. Later, cultivating mini bonsai trees became a type of art among Japanese aristocracy, who would use us to create miniature landscapes in a pot.
Nowadays, we bonsai trees are small but perfectly-formed additions to your home, or we make a brilliant gift for a green fingered friend. Wherever I end up, I’m sure to bring a sense of tranquillity to any room.
Small height (including nursery pot) 30cm; pot diameter 11cm

THINGS WE ALWAYS GET ASKED
How do you care for a ficus ginseng bonsai tree?
The most important trick is to keep it settled in one place: this will stop the leaves dropping (they will grow back - we promise!), so resist the temptation to move your plant around.
The ficus ginseng does need repotting every other year during the spring. Never fear: it’s an easy process, but you’ll want to invest in some specialist bonsai potting soil that’s filled with all the lovely nutrients that your favourite little plant needs to grow.
Where is the best place to put a bonsai tree?
Whether you’re green-fingered or this is your first foray into caring for an indoor bonsai tree, a happy, healthy ficus ginseng bonsai should be kept in a light spot – but away from direct sunlight - to soak up all the light that it loves. It’ll thrive if kept at a relatively constant temperature (between 15 and 25°C) away from draughts and should be watered once weekly in winter or twice weekly during the summer months.
As a plant that hails from tropical climes, it also loves humidity, so keep it close to other small plants or place near a humidifier. For added growth spurts, be sure to fertilise it every fortnight in summer (just monthly in winter) to keep it lush and green.
