Several characteristics make this tree very popular for Bonsai uses, including fast growth, ability to grow indoors and not so sensitive to watering mistakes. Most fig trees grow "banyan" roots naturally; this feature is often showcased by styling Ficus in dramatic air-root and root-over-rock styles.
Position: Indoor Bonsai (or outside in summer, if temperatures are above 15 degrees C (59F), preferably lots of light (full sun is no problem, full shade is). Keep the temperature stable. Figs tolerate low humidity levels and dry air with their thick waxy leaves.
Watering: Normal watering. The Ficus is very tolerant of over/under watering. Daily misting to maintain humidity is advised.
Feeding: Use our organic fertilizer. Fertilize once every 4 months
