5" Bonsai Ficus

Similar to most Ficus trees, the Ficus Retusa prefers a spot where it will receive plenty of bright, indirect light. This plant will not tolerate long periods of direct sun or low light conditions. Ideally, place your Retusa directly in an eastern facing window, or a few feet removed from a southern or western facing window.

Ficus Retusa prefer soil that is consistently and evenly moist, with small periods of drought between waterings. Allow the top 2”-3” of the soil to dry between waterings. Allowing the soil to dry more than a few inches will lead to leaf loss. In contrast, too much moisture in the soil can lead to root rot and also cause leaves to drop. Be sure to check in with the soil regularly until you develop a routine with your plant.

 

Bonsai prefer to be planted in a shallow dish with proper drainage. 

Prune regularly to retain desired shape.
