Providing your ginseng ficus bonsai with ample light is essential for its well-being. When grown indoors, positioning it on a sunny windowsill is an excellent choice. In cases where direct sunlight is limited, supplemental plant lights can assist in promoting healthy growth for your Ginseng Ficus Bonsai. During the summer, if you decide to move your bonsai outdoors, ensure it’s placed in a location that receives abundant sunlight, as these plants do not thrive in the shade and require plenty of natural light to flourish.

Daily misting can help maintain humidity, but it’s essential not to saturate the plant. In warmer environments, you may need to water more frequently to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.

Additionally, to keep your bonsai plant healthy, gently wipe the leaves with a damp paper towel when they accumulate dust. Alternatively, a spray bottle can be used to mist the leaves, preventing dust buildup and promoting the plant’s overall well-being.

The Ficus Retusa, Ficus Ginseng Bonsai tree plant is rated for Zones 9 to 11.
