Plant compositions: Ficus microcarpa ‘Ginseng’, moss, gravel, soil.
In this bonsai capsule lives a small Ficus microcarpa ‘Ginseng’. He likes to get a haircut done regularly, but don’t worry! You won’t meet any other bonsai more patience with your cutting skills. He is super easy going and thriving with most conditions, are far as it is not in direct sunlight 🙂
The interesting fact: this specie of tropical fig produce aerial roots once humidity is high enough (at least 80% of humidity). The process is really fast, so don’t be surprised as one day you notice tiny white roots emerging from branches or trunk. They rapidly reach moss or soil and start to dig even deeper. After some time they turn brown and start to resemble an Angkor Wat trees with twist and tassels of roots.
