Ficus Ginseng makes for a fabulous Bonsai specimen with its funky  S-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.

This lovely variety of Ficus is also extremely easy to maintain as long as they are provided with good 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 Ficus Ginseng houseplant with good humidity and warmth to keep it looking its best and pair it with a classic planter or palm leaf basket to finish off the look.

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

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 regularity during the growing season of Spring through Summer, once every 2 weeks is ideal. Do not feed in winter.
