A Ficus Ginseng (also called Ficus Microcarpa) has whimsical branched air roots with sturdy, oval and shiny leaves. The robust bonsai gives you a relaxed feeling and looks different from every angle. So give it the attention it deserves .
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 around 15 years. They are then imported by growers and grown as bonsai. By the time the Ficus Ginseng is in your living room or office, it has already had a lifetime.
With proper care, Ficus microcarpa Ginseng can be kept for years. The plant requires a moderate amount of water, more in the summer than in the winter. Never leave water in the bowl or dish, because the plant does not like wet feet. Feed regularly. The Ficus can also go outside in the summer, preferably in the shade. It is also possible in the living room, but then you must keep the root ball slightly moist. Just like a Bonsai, this plant can be further shaped. Runners that can disfigure the shape of the Ficus can be trimmed without any problems, so that the decorative wood remains clearly visible.
A Ficus Ginseng should not be missing from your collection of pot plants.
