There are over 600 species of Ficus, most of them tropical and evergreen. Ficus is one of the most loved bonsai for many reasons. Ficus “Ginseng” varieties have fat trunks, with substantial exposed roots, giving the tree a very exotic and tropical feel. Gensing Grafted Ficus trees embody strength, with grafted branches displaying full clusters of compact foliage and glossy, oval leaves. It is an excellent tree for beginners, as most species of Ficus are fast growers, tolerant of most any soil and light conditions, make fine indoor bonsai, and perhaps most importantly, are remarkably forgiving of those just learning bonsai watering techniques. Your bonsai tree thrives while windowsills stay dry and debris-free. A tray can also be used outdoors to improve conditions in dry or windy sites.
