Fantastic plant - an Areca Palm - at a fantastic price. Finishes off our bedroom redecoration perfectly. Can’t fault the service we received, next day delivery and the plant is amazing! It can sometimes be a gamble buying plants on line but we were blown away with the plant we received, it’s huge, healthy and beautiful. Definitely had the wow factor and we’d definitely recommend Oxy-Plants!

Love my plant!! I bought a Areca Palm - 140cm and it's perfect. It looks amazing in our bay window and looks exactly how it looks on the website. I've seen some bad reviews on here but my experience has been great. Buying plants online is tricky and this is my first time buying houseplants from Oxy and am very pleased with the service.

I”d ordered two gorgeous pots and some ferns to put in them, sadly one pot arrived split and John, without hesitation, resent a new one. I am delighted with the results and the ease of communication with oxyplants.

Thanks Lucie for all your help! – I spoke to Lucie over Oxy-Plants Instagram as I was a little unsure which plants would be good for my office. She recommended a devil’s ivy for my bookcase and a swiss cheese plant for the corner of my room. It looks amazing, thanks so much!!!

I was struggling with what present to give my mum as a present this year. I opted for a poinsettia plant and she wasn’t disappointed. The plant is still doing well, even into January.

I usually don’t write reviewsI usually don’t write reviews, but this one was owed. Before purchasing my gorgeous Bird of Paradise I contacted the Company and got in touch with Cliah who went above and beyond to accommodate my request. Needless to say I received the plant in one day and is absolutely delightful. A very well deserved 5 start to them!

My Devil's Ivy plant arrived within a couple of days, very well packaged and totally healthy. Absolutely love it and the macrame hanger I ordered at the same time. Also, I made an email enquiry to oxy-plants and had the loveliest response. Such a positive experience, I strongly recommend this company for its efficiency and value for money.

When we wanted some advice about the right plants for our office space, Oxy-Plants were the obvious choice. There was lots of useful information on the website, and the customer service was second to none. When we had a problem, they fixed it, quickly and efficiently. We love the plants and love the prices - delivery was easy and the plants well packaged.

How To Care For Bonsai Ginseng

Water when the top third of the soil has dried out and let it dry out more during autumn and winter. For those in shadier places; water when half of the soil has dried out to counteract the chance of over-watering, especially in the winter months. If the plant is starting to get stunted growth, dry spots appearing on the leaves and yellowing older leaves. Than the plant is or under-watered, is in a too bright/hot spot, is potbound or pot-bound. If the plant starts getting yellowing lower leaves, brown mushy patches developing in the stems and mouldy soil. Than the plant is or over-watered, gets too little light, has lack of drainage or incorrect soil  and possibly got root rot.

Keep in a brightly lit area close to a window but out of direct sunlight for optimum conditions.

Bonsais love a humid environment. Be sure to keep your bonsai away from radiators and give your plant a mist every so often. To go the extra mile, why not introduce a humidity tray over the colder months of the year?

Bonsais thrive with soil that retains water well. it is recommended that a mixture of grit, peat, and loam should be used with your bonsai.

During the growing season, be sure to use a little fertiliser every week. In spring, it may be worth using nitrogen-heavy fertiliser. However, as you reach summer and autumn it would be wise to use a well-balanced fertiliser instead.

Ginseng Ficus Bonsais aren’t prone to pests and diseases. In rare cases, aphids and whiteflies can occur. To treat, why not use our Neem Oil?

You should look to repot your bonsai every two years. A good way to gauge this is by looking at your roots. If plenty are touching the sides of the ceramic pot, it’s time to repot!

About Bonsai Ginseng

Ficus Microcarpa Ginseng provides a fantastic opportunity to grow a bonsai from juvenility. Fancy a bit of a project? Being a popular bonsai tree with a thick, pot-bellied trunk, similar to the Ginseng root, this plant is destined to grow with a little bit of help and nurture. Whilst this indoor plant is not supplied with a pot, why not accompany it with one of our Bettona or Classic ceramic pots?

Translating from Chinese as “tree in a tray”, the sweet plum bonsai with a ceramic pot is one of the most popular plants on the market! First cared for by Buddhist monks in China, before travelling eastward to Korea and Japan, this Ginseng Ficus Bonsai is the perfect addition to those wanting elegance and serenity in their home.

Bonsai trees have also been shown, in scientific studies, to reduce the incidences of sore throats, dry coughs, colds, and dry skin. The explanation behind this lies behind the bonsai’s ability to naturally regulate your home’s levels of humidity.  Similarly, with their natural ability to bring calmness and serenity to those who look at them, bonsais have also been used as “nature therapy” to quicken rates of psychological and physiological rehabilitation in patients.

Toxicity

Toxic to humans and pets. Ginseng Ficus Bonsai is toxic to humans and pets. When eaten it can cause burning and swelling of the lips, tongue and throat and it can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.

Please note: this plant comes in a plastic nursery pot. Browse our entire range of plant pots to add that extra charm and character to your home.
