Succulent Plant Mature Ficus Ginseng.
A uniquely shaped, tree like plant.
Weight 1 lbs
The Mature Ficus Ginseng Tree is native to south and eastern Asian countries. It is in the Ficus genus but has a heavy, chunky trunk, which is similar to ginseng roots. Its botanical name is Ficus Microcarpa. The tree is also known as a Pot Belly Fig as well as Taiwan Ficus, Indian Laurel Fig, or Banyan Fig. Ficus trees grow very quickly and make excellent indoor plants. The trunks of these trees are interesting with smooth gray bark marked with tiger stripes and sometimes vertical aerial roots. This is a tropical tree, so it needs to be grown where temperatures are 60 to 75 degrees . In fact, the ficus ginseng is often recommended for beginning bonsai growers. This is because it is such an easy tree to grow. The tree needs plenty of indirect bright light. Try to avoid the southern exposure where the sun may burn leaves. Outdoors, the tree requires sun to shady conditions. Once you select the perfect spot for this tree try not to move it. Ficus are notoriously unhappy when moved. It does, however, require repotting every 2 to 3 years. Avoid placing the tree in any area where there are drafts or near heat, where one will freeze the tree and the other will dry out soil. Wipe the leaves when they get dusty and water only when the surface of the soil is dry to the touch. This plant prefers high humidity, if possible, which will encourage it to produce more aerial roots. Mist the leaves frequently.
