More information

The Retusa ficus in 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 subject with a well-developed trunk.

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.

All our bonsai are unique. That's why they're referenced by numbers. These do not indicate the age of the tree. If you would like to know more about it, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to let you know its approximate age.

We ship bonsai throughout France and neighbouring countries that are part of the EU.

We take care to pack each bonsai in custom-made wooden crates or reinforced cartons. The tree is well protected and tied to prevent any risk of breakage.

Depending on the size and weight of your bonsai, shipping is carried out by specialized carriers: DPD (under 30kg) or GEODIS (+30kg).

Our priority is that the delivery of your bonsai goes smoothly. For this reason, shipments are rarely made on weekends and never during heat waves, to prevent your bonsai from transacting for too long. We also regularly check and verify the tracking of your packages.

Do not hesitate to consult our delivery page to learn more about our methods.
