Plant compositions: Ficus Microcarpa ‘Ginseng’, Hedera helix, moss, gravel, soil.
In this terrarium lives a small Ficus bonsai. He likes to get a haircut done from time to time, but don’t worry! You won’t meet any other bonsai more patience with your first cuts. He is super easy going and thriving with most conditions, are far as it is not in direct sunlight 🙂
Worth to mention is also fact that 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.
The bonsai terrarium is hand-made in Berlin, inside of recycled eco-glass which has a slightly greenish tint and tiny air bubbles within its structure. The capsule is closed with a cork lid.
Each capsule has its own name and personality, at the moment Gerhart is available, the little one standing on 1-feet (see the pictures:) 🙂
H: 36 cm, D: 19 cm
Each capsule is unique and may differ from the photos shown.
Short care tips for terrarium/flaschengarten:
