Ficus benjamina ‘Natasja’ saplings growing inside of the smallest flaschengarten we offer.
In this terrarium lives a small Ficus benjamina ‘Natasja’ bonsai, plant commonly known as weeping fig, benjamin fig or ficus tree is a species of the family Moraceae, native to Asia and Australia. This tropical fig cultivar with unusually tiny leaves has a great proportion to create a small landscape inside of the glass. From curiosities, it is the official tree of Bangkok, so it might be a perfect companion to remind you of some warm holidays.
She likes to get a haircut done from time to time, but don’t worry! As another Ficus, it has a lot of patience for your first cuts. She is super easy going and thriving with most conditions, but it worths keeping in mind that she appreciates having her own place and does not like changing it. Therefore would be nice to get her a nice, bright place but not in direct sunlight (at least 1m from the windows or heater).
As a piece of side information: 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 Angkor Wat trees with twist and tassels of roots.
