Ficus Ginseng Bonsai, or Ficus microcarpa, is a large tropical evergreen tree that is often used in interior landscapes and also as a fine ornamental outdoor tree in tropical, sub-tropical and mediterranean climates (they can tolerate quite low temperatures). The largest specimen in a botanic garden is over 33m high and has a spread of 76m.
Indoor plants are, however, much smaller.
The Ginseng Bonsai form is produced as a small decorative indoor plant by grafting small shoots of foliage onto sections of roots and stems from mature trees (sometimes from a different Ficus species), to produce highly characterful plants resembling traditional bonsai trees. These could be in a gnarly, clumpy shape or more elegant curves and ‘S’ shapes, and they can be produced in a large variety of sizes. All our potted plants come in compostable coir pots.
