Looking After A Bonsai Ginseng - My Basic Hints
The Bonsai Ginseng is a fantastic beginner bonsai for all ages given its hardy nature and capability to bounce back if it's been discounted.
Other names for this plant include Ficus ginseng and ginseng bonsai, regardless of its name it's a great plant as it is suitable for both indoor and outside conditions (excluding extreme temperatures).
You will frequently find that when you purchase a Bonsai Ginseng plant it's pebbles or little stone pasted to it around the foot of the trunk. The explanation for this is baffling and perhaps has something to do with department stores such as Wal-Mart dressing up them to look pretty and therefore drive sales.
Quite often these plants come in an average looking pot (not a bonsai pot) too little to allow it to actually grow and thrive, which will be what you as an owner will want.
Step one carrying out a Bonsai Ginseng purchase must be to eliminate the pebbles and if possible repot the plant right into a marginally bigger and better quality pot so that you can enable room and better drainage for the plants roots system to grow and take hold. The benefit of which further down the path, better trunk and root system and will be a healthier, more dense leaf.

It's important to provide a good soak to the plant by watering from above, and do this. This may remove salts and minerals from the soil and in a way will cleanse the plant.
Something I've learnt over time and through trial and error is the fact that Bonsai Ginseng like to be left outside during summer and brought inside during autumn leading up to the cooler months of winter. The reason being that the Ficus ginseng plant is of a tropical heritage where dwelling is in warmer areas of the world like Taiwan. Clearly, keeping the plant indoor or outside is determined by where you live so that it could possibly be worthwhile talking with your local nursery to get specifics on your climate, as well as the temperatures which can be common in your region.

Eventually, pruning is something which will be tempting for most new bonsai owner's but after having followed the steps above, it's important to not jump the gun especially. Allowing the plant to actually take root and hold systems to grow is significant before pruning your Bonsai Ginseng. You do your research and can begin pruning, but remember steady wins the race once new friends start to form to the very best of the plant!
