About Bonsai Ficus Ginseng


Ficus Ginseng or Ficus microcarpa is a common ornamental houseplant and outdoor tree often found growing along the streets of warm and tropical regions. The plant has been naturalised in parts of Africa, the Pacific and the Americas.


The roots of the houseplant are cultivated in China and Malaysia, where they are grown for around 15 years to develop their thick trunks. They are then imported into Europe by Dutch growers and grafted to create their classic bonsai look. In the wild Ficus microcarpa are only pollinated by one type of wasp.


Bonsai Ficus Ginseng prefers warmth, ample light and humidity. They can temporarily cope with cooler temperatures and less light during winter, but they may drop leaves if they feel too stressed.

Did you know?

In some cultures in southeast Asia, the trees are thought to be home to spirits and in China, they are associated with Qi energy. They also hold spiritual significance in Buddhism and Taoism.


If ingested this plant can be toxic or poisonous so keep away from dogs, cats or other pets and small children.
