Golden Gate Ficus
Our Golden Gate Ficus is an elegant and captivating bonsai with beautiful dark green leaves. Hand-wired for stunning trunk movement, it adds life and sophistication to any room. Flourishing indoors, it has a dense crown, smooth gray bark, and charming aerial roots. Easy to care for, it thrives in a warm, sunny spot.
Bonsai take weeks to acclimate and may shed 20% of the foliage. Place your Bonsai in sunny areas near southeast or west-facing windows. They flourish outdoors on the patio/deck with morning sun and afternoon shade. Bring your Bonsai back indoors when night temps fall below 55 degrees.
Watering properly. Watering correctly is critical! Indoor Bonsai should generally be watered every 2-3 days; refer to tag. Use ice cubes or a watering can with a fine-spray nozzle to water; humidity trays can help capture excess water.
Repotting. Repot with good bonsai soil every 4-5 years during late spring/early summer. Bonsai requires periodic trimming to maintain a miniature shape.
Fertilizing. Fertilize with water-soluble or time-released fertilizers, slow-releasing organic for mature bonsai. Inspect regularly for insects and diseases, and treat with products from the garden center.
