Plant compositions: Ficus benjamina var. ‘White Baby’, moss, gravel, soil.
Ficus benjamina ‘White Baby’ saplings growing inside of the medium terrarium/flaschengarten.
In this terrarium lives a small Ficus benjamina ‘White Baby’ bonsai, a plant commonly known as weeping fig, benjamin fig or ficus tree. This variegation has duo color leaves, green with white contour. To underline it, in between there is one sapling of var. ‘Natasja’ in plain green. Both species belongs to 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.
Her name is Janni and she likes to get a haircut done from time to time, but don’t worry! As another Ficus, she has a lot of patience for your first cuts. She is super easy going and thriving with most conditions, with a few exceptions:
- direct sunlight and the window sill (so, do not put her there:)
- switching places: she doesn’t like changes much, rather she appreciates a routine, so getting the same condition every day. Find her once nice spot, and leave her there.
Worth mentioning is also the fact that she produces 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.
