Pruning and Shaping:

  • Spring is the best time for repotting.
  • Use a well-draining bonsai soil mix, and prune back some of the roots to maintain the tree's size and promote healthy growth.


Pests and Diseases:

  • While the Bonsai Ficus Ginseng is generally hardy,
  • it can be susceptible to common houseplant pests like aphids, scale insects, and spider mites.
  • Regularly inspect the leaves and branches for any signs of pests or diseases, and take appropriate measures, such as using insecticidal soap or neem oil, if necessary.

Watering:

  • Reduce or stop fertilizing during the winter dormancy period.


Repotting:

  • Report your Ficus Ginseng bonsai every two to three years to prevent the roots from becoming pot-bound.
  • Spring is the ideal time for repotting.
  • Trim back some of the roots and replace the old soil with fresh bonsai soil mix.
