Product Description

A quirky plant that is grown in Bonsai style, Ficus Ginseng is a robust, easy-care houseplant that will bring a little Zen into your home.

A bonsai suitable for beginners, the plant is characterized by the shape of its trunk and the miniature canopy of small, shiny oval leaves. The thick, pot-bellied trunk is actually made up of roots and this is where it gets its name - Ginseng is Chinese for 'root'.

Originating in Asia, the roots of Ficus Ginseng are grown for 15 years or so before being finished in the greenhouse as bonsai - so your little plant has already had a long life by the time it arrives in your home.

Place your Ficus 'Ginseng' in a prominent place so it can be enjoyed all day -and in summer it can even take pride of place outdoors on the patio or decking.

Ideal for those venturing into the world of bonsai growing for the first time, Ficus Ginseng is the easiest bonsai tree to grow because it is very tolerant of a range of conditions.

Supplied as a potted plant in a 14cm nursery pot.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Remove yellow, brown or damaged leaves and prune lightly in winter to keep your Ficus Ginseng in shape. The roots dont need to be pruned.

Care Guide

  • Ficus Ginseng thrives indoors in good light and appreciates being kept outdoors during spring and summer.
  • If outside, protect your bonsai from the midday sun, and when temperatures drop below 54F (12C) bring it indoors and place it on or near a windowsill.
  • Never neglect watering - allow the compost to dry between waterings, but not completely. If you accidentally let your trees soil dry out, immerse the container in a bucket of water for an hour to properly soak it, before draining well. In the winter, you'll need to water less.
  • It is normal for a Ficus tree to lose some leaves, but if its dropping more than a few, then under or over watering may be the problem.
  • Ficus may also lose leaves if not getting enough light - simply move your plant into a sunnier spot. Also, acclimatisation after moving may have an effect - this is normal, especially if your plant has summered outdoors as its simply getting used to a new position.
