Scientific Name: Ficus Retusa
Synonyms: Banyan Fig, Taiwan Ficus, Laurel Fig

  • Attractive deep green foliage
  • Giant Bonsai structure
  • Relatively easy care
  • Makes for a gorgeous living decor piece
  • Ideal for small spaces

Ficus Ginseng makes for a fabulous Bonsai specimen with its funky potbelly shaped trunk and gorgeous deep green foliage. 

These awesome trees have been grown in the form of Bonsai's making them the perfect indoor tree without taking up a lot of space. Ideal for smaller homes or office spaces looking for something outstanding to create a presence, especially if used as a tabletop focal piece. Alternatively, they look fantastic as part of a floor level plant display, adding that mid-level height for contrast.

This lovely variety of Ficus is also extremely easy to maintain as long as they are provided with good filtered light and airflow, but avoid placing in a cool draught or direct sunlight. Watering is also a dream with this beauty as they require their soil to dry out completely, adding to their tolerance of occasional under or overwatering.

Provide your Bonsai Ficus Ginseng with good humidity and warmth to keep it looking its best and you'll have a houseplant that will last you many years.

Check out our Table Top Plant or Floor Standing Plant Collections for additional options.

Make your Ficus Ginseng look extra charming with one of these styling tips:

Follow these instructions to keep your Ficus Ginseng happy & healthy.

  • Water: Water your ficus immediately once the soil reaches dryness and avoids keeping the soil too dry or too wet fr prolonged periods.
  • Light: Very bright filtered light is ideal.
  • Humidity: Provide your plant with high humidity to keep it thriving, however, if you cannot do this, provide your plant with a pebble tray.
  • Fertilize: Feed regularly with a quality fertiliser during the growing season of Spring through Summer, once every 2 weeks is ideal. Do not feed in winter.

Please note: Ficus is known to cause stomach upset if consumed, keep out of reach of pets and children.
