Ficus Ginseng Bonsai 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

Sweet Plum 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.

How To Care For Ginseng Ficus Bonsai

watering
Watering

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.

Light & Location

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

Humidity

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?

soil
Soil

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.

Fertiliser

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.

Pests and Diseases

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?

potting
Repotting

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!
