The Ficus Retusa is one of the easiest of all the Indoor, evergreen species for bonsai. It is a popular tree for bonsai enthusiasts as they can have striking trunks in addition to Ariel roots that give the tree its character and popularity.

The Ficus genus belongs to the family of mulberry plants (Moraceae). The Retusa is among the most tolerant, versatile and trouble-free bonsai trees  making them popular for indoor use. 

There are hundreds of varieties of the Ficus, but a common one for Bonsai is the Ficus Retusa, this is often shaped in an s-curved trunk and has dark green, oval leaves. 

Location

As the Ficus is a tropical tree it can be kept inside. However it benefits from being in full sunlight so try to avoid putting it in a shady position. 

Temperature 

They need a minimum temperature of about 10°C or 50°F during the Winter and to be kept just moist. They like humidity so having a drip tray is advised.

Watering

The watering of your bonsai must never be neglected. Apply water before the soil appears dry - never allow the soil to become completely dry or waterlogged. You may need to water more during the summer months but please observe your tree to decide what’s best given the conditions it is in. 

Pruning

Prune regularly to maintain the trees shape. How often will depend on the season and how vigorous the tree is growing. 

Feeding 

Apply a general fertiliser every 2-3 weeks during the growing season, reduce this to once a month in winter (always read the label before using a fertiliser) 

Repotting

Repot your Ficus when it needs it. Possibly every couple of years.
