Caring For A Ginseng Bonsai - My Straightforward Tips
The Bonsai Ginseng is a fantastic beginner bonsai for all ages given its hardy nature and power to bounce back if it has been discounted.
Other names for this particular plant contain Ficus ginseng and ginseng bonsai, aside from its own name it really is a wonderful plant as it is suitable for both indoor and outside conditions (excluding extreme temperatures).
You'll commonly find that when you purchase a Bonsai Ginseng plant it's pebbles or little stone pasted around the base of the trunk to it. The explanation for this is somewhat baffling and maybe has something to do with department stores such as Wal Mart dressing them up to look pretty and therefore drive sales.
Quite frequently these plants come in a average looking pot (not a bonsai pot) too little to permit it to actually grow and thrive, which is what you as an owner will need.
Step one following a Bonsai Ginseng purchase should be to take away the pebbles and if possible re-pot the plant right into a slightly larger and better quality pot to be able to enable better drainage and room for the plants roots system to grow and take hold. The advantage of which further down the trail, better trunk and root system and will be a healthier, more compact leaf.

It really is very important to give the plant a great soak by watering from above, and do this. This can remove and salts in the soil and in a way will cleanse the plant.
Something I have learnt over time and through trial and error is the fact that brought indoors during autumn leading up to the cooler months of winter and Bonsai Ginseng like to be left outside during summer. The reason being that the Ficus ginseng plant is of a tropical tradition where house is in warmer parts of the planet like Taiwan. Clearly, keeping the plant indoor or outdoors will depend on your geographical area along with the temperatures which can be common in your area so it may be worthwhile speaking with the local nursery to get specifics for your climate.

Finally, pruning is something which will be tempting for most bonsai owner's that are new but it's important never to jump the gun particularly after having followed the steps above. Letting the plant to actually take hold and root systems to grow is important before pruning your Bonsai Ginseng. Once new buds begin to form towards the top of the plant you do your research and can start pruning, but remember steady wins the race!
