About Bonsai Ficus Ginseng

History

The 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.

Cultivation

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.
