Ficus Ginseng (Ficus microcarpa)
A Ficus Ginseng "also called Ficus Microcarpa" has erratic branched aerial roots with firm, oval and shiny leaves. The robust bonsai gives you a relaxed feeling and looks different from every angle, so give him the attention he deserves. .
The history of your Ficus Ginseng
Originally the Ficus Ginseng comes from Asia and really feels at home there. The roots of the houseplant are still grown in China and Malaysia, where they grow for about fifteen years. Then they are imported by growers and cultivated as bonsai. By the time the Ficus Ginseng is with you in the living room or office, she has already had a whole life behind her.
With good care, Ficus microcarpa Ginseng can be kept for years.
Place this houseplant on a sunny spot. Possibly in the summer half shadow.
The plant requires a moderate amount of water, in summer more than in winter.
Never leave water in the dish or dish, because the plant does not like wet feet.
Give nutrition regularly. The Ficus can also go outdoors in the summer, preferably in the shade.
In the living room is also possible, but then you should keep the root ball slightly moist.
Just like a Bonsai, this plant can be further shaped.
Foothills that can mar the shape of the Ficus can be trimmed without problems, so that the decorative wood remains visible.
A Ficus Ginseng should not be missing from your collection of pot plants.
