How to care for your Ficus Ginseng Bonsai

Native habitat

The Ficus Ginseng is native to the Tropical and Subtropical Asia

Light and position in the home

These plants like a lot of bright, but indirect light. A bright spot in an east- or west-facing room would be ideal. Once you have found a good location for it, it's best to leave it there as they don't like to be moved around too much. Keep it away from draughts, as this can cause leaf drop.


Water when the top inch of soil is dry using lukewarm water. Checking the soil frequently with your finger is the best way to know when it needs watering.
