Ginseng Ficus, also known as Ficus Microcarpa 'Ginseng', is a popular choice for bonsai enthusiasts. This tree has a unique appearance, with thick, bulbous roots that give it a distinctive look.
Few Bonsai trees are more loved than the Ginseng Grafted Ficus, it's our #4 selling tropical bonsai. It has a unique look, with a lush dense green canopy growing above a series of branching trunks. Even without training, this is a truly striking and exotic plant that is bound to start conversations.
Better yet, it is also extremely hardy and easy to care for. This makes it an excellent choice for beginners. The exotic, fantasy-like look of the tree also makes it perfect for people who would like to dress up their tree with accessories - just imagine a little gnome or fairy hiding among its roots or peeking out from behind the leaves!
Due to the Ficus Ginseng's longevity, it typically symbolizes long life and prosperity. With its huge sturdy trunks, it also symbolizes strength. As a gift, a Ficus Ginseng is a wish for life, happiness, and a prosperous household.

About The Bonsai Tree:
Like The Komodo Dragon and Pad Thai, the Ginseng Ficus is native to Southeast Asia.
Unlike The Komodo Dragon and Pad Thai, the Ginseng Ficus has a thick, pot-bellied trunk with stunning exposed roots, glossy oval leaves and is named for its resemblance to the Ginseng plant's roots (it's also not poisonous and doesn't cure hangovers...or does it?).
The Ginseng Grafted Ficus will do really well inside or out, requires little sunlight and doesn't need much water. It's essentially contributing-to-the-household's-income and doing the dishes away from being perfect.
We recommend using Tinyroots Tropical Soil instead of regular potting soil. Your bonsai / plants will enjoy it!
