Ficus Retusa Specimen Indoor Bonsai Tree
Ficus retusa is a great variety of tree for indoor bonsai. It has small pointed leaves and is happy living in our overly warm homes with their dry atmosphere and fairly low light levels and will look good all year round. The tree is very drought tolerant so it's unlikely to cause a problem if you forget to water for a day or two.
Ficus should be re-potted in summer, their recovery in much faster and more reliable than if the work is done in spring. Use our No2 Bonsai Soil Mix. Ideally keep ficus in a very bright area such as a conservatory or greenhouse. Water well in summer but keep the soil a little dry over winter. Feed well when in growth with Bonsai Focus.
An excellent ficus with a powerful trunk relative to it's size. Ficus of this quality are increasingly hard to find! With a superb trunk, lots of aerial roots, great tapering branches, bark texture and dense ramification this is a superb example of this very popular species.
Planted in a glazed stoneware bonsai pot that may have a few nicks and dings, we'll give the pot a good clean before we ship the tree!
