More information

The ficus bonsai is generally considered a beginner's tree because many enthusiasts have been introduced to this art with it. However, it has all the qualities to make great bonsai, especially when you choose a plant with a well-developed trunk.

Caring for a ficus tree in bonsai

Location : Where there is a lot of light! Indoors next to a large south-facing bay window, the ideal would be veranda or greenhouse style, avoid putting it next to the radiator, possibility of putting it outside from spring to autumn in full sun!

Watering : It needs a substrate that is always moist. Water your ficus tree regularly while allowing the root ball to dry out slightly between waterings to avoid excess water. Watering should be done on a regular basis. In hot weather, it's every day ! Don't hesitate to mist the foliage for a long time when it's hot.

To do it right : water the entire root ball up to the roots, the water will drain away through the holes under the pot or bathe the tree in water (drenching) for a few minutes. We do not recommend putting a cup or container underneath your pot as the water will stagnate and can cause root rot. (Too much water = asphyxiation).

Repotting and substrate: Every 2/3 years in spring when the buds swell and new leaves appear. In the nursery, we use agricultural potting soil which is composed of black peat peat, eco-aged, topsoil, horse manure, pozzolana

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

Fertilization : Blue Tomato/Flower Fertilizer NPK 12 12 17. You can use some and put a handful (small or large depending on the size of the pot) on the substrate from May to October, every 2 months alternating chemical/organic.
