Caring for a Retusa ficus in bonsai

Location : where there is a lot of light! Indoors next to a large south-facing bay window. Outside, full sun! During the winter it will need to be protected because it does not tolerate frost: put it in an unheated room or a cold greenhouse but always keep plenty of light (and avoid putting it next to the radiator).

Watering : abundant during hot weather, the rest of the time water when the top of the substrate is dry. Don't hesitate to mist the foliage for a long time when it's hot.

Substrate and repotting : soils draining with 1/3 organic matter. Repot in the spring, when the buds swell and new leaves appear.

Pruning : In early spring, remove unnecessary branches. During the growing season, prune to 5 to 7 leaves.

Fertilization : April to September.
