Indoor (Tolereant) Bonai – Ficus Nerifolia Complete With 8″ Ceramic Bonsai Pot.
Willow Leaf Ficus in an 8″ ceramic pot with our premium Lava Rock Soil. I encourage all species of bonsai to be grown outside but if you are attempting to keep your bonsai inside Ficus is the best choice. They can tolerate low light condition, and are more hardy than most other species of bonsai. Includes Fukuyama Slow release fertilizer. Has been trained for 2 years as a bonsai specimen by me personally. I received it bare root as pre-bonsai material imported from Taiwan. After 3 months in the greenhouse the root system was developed and foliage filled in. At this point I re-potted the tree into a new plastic training pot, wired the branches achieve the desired style. Using strategic trunk chops I created decent taper, a good trunk base with and aerial roots beginning to develop.
As an indoor bonsai it’s important that it gets a few hours a day of sunlight, or supplemental light through a light designed for plants which gives a full UV spectrum. Fans help circulation indoors which helps with the O2 exchange. Light and good flow of O2 are the two most biggest issues when trying to keep bonsai trees inside.
Great tree for a beginner as Ficus are one of the most hardy versatile species.
For experienced bonsai practitioner makes a great start to a masterpiece which can be trained for years to come.
