Ficus microcarpa 'Ginseng' has oval, dark green leaves, with exposed roots and a thick trunk that looks like Ginseng root. Place in bright light - the stronger the light, the more water it will need - water regularly and don't let the rootball dry out. High humidity is preferable, responds very well to daily misting. It is a popular plant to grow as a Bonsai & compared to most used in the art they are very easy to care for, making it a great starter plant to learn the bonsai practice.
~Although drought tolerant, do not allow your Ficus to dry out too much. In general, Ficus should be kept slightly moist during the growing season. Water when the top 2" of soil are dry. They do not like wet feet, so if 30 minutes after watering you see water in the saucer, pour it away.
~ Ficus prefer medium to bright light & can even be acclimated to grow in full sun. Do not place in low light areas.
~Do Not place in drafty areas or under/near an air vent. Unless temperature & humidity are high, drafts or cold air may cause Ficus to drop their lower leaves.
