    Help with Ginseng Ficus!

    Hi! I’ve had this focus for over a year. I took it to a garden place to get it repotted and since then, it has begun to worsen. The person who repotted it placed it in this pot but with compact houseplant soil. I, who know nothing about plants, thought it was perfect. But after doing research, I...

    Ficus Ginseng Soil.

    I got a ficus for Christmas. For soil I bought organic houseplant soil that has fertilizer, and some fir bark and I might also grab some small lava rocks. I haven't potted it in the new soil yet. The only problem is that the fir bark is too big I think (on average ~3/4 in.) Should I cut up the...

    Ginseng Ficus Water Color

    Not exactly bonsai but a 13 year old in a youth group I work with knows I'm interested in bonsai so he painted this for me. I thought it was worth sharing.

    What are your thoughts on my worm?

    So, about a month ago I bought a ficus similar to the one shown, and chopped off one of the "legs" similarly to how I've shown on the tree below. Where the white line is on the left side is roughly where I chopped the other tree, and now I have what I have been calling "my worm" in the little...

    First styling of this ficus ginseng I’ve had for 6 years

    First image was on June 19th. It has really filled out. Today I’m checking the wiring because some of the wire looks to be biting in.

    My Ikea Ginseng Ficus: An Autopsy

    My ginseng ficus, Clotilde, is dead. She was my first and I had her for over a year. Only recently I noticed all her new leaves had fallen off and when I went to investigate, her trunk felt water logged. The photos tell the story better. My partner says I can take the stems that have green nubs...

    Why holes in ficus trunk?

    Big moment this is my first bonsai post, be easy, I’m not completely green but new. Two days ago I rotated the tree and noticed a small hole at the soil line. I researched and learned to clean out and fill to save the tree. I’ve searched online and cannot find specific reasons why this happened...

    Is my tree dying?

    hello, I got my tree as a gift two years ago, and it’s been doing fine up until recently. I’ve noticed that it’s trunk seems to be getting soft and wrinkled. This has happened before after not watering it for awhile, but this time after watering it it doesn’t seem to be getting any better. It...

    Help this Bonsai amateur!!

    Hello everyone! I got a bonsai tree as a gift couple of months ago and since then I haven't done much besides watering it, and even that I'm not sure if I'm doing right, since the lady at the shop told my cousin that you should pour some water into the container in which the pot is placed and...

    My first Ficus

    I finally got my first Ficus. I'm guessing that it is a Ginseng Ficus but with this being my first ficus I do not have any experience with them. I guess I could watch Nigel and see what he says. :D I was at a local nursery and they had it marked for $7 so I grabbed it. The pot says that its...

    Ficus duo, anyway semi cascade

    Hey there! A few years ago i bought this ficus. I think the base/trunk is a different variety than the foliage(Ficus Ginseng and Microcarpa. Supposedly to make it more attractive I guess. Now since short a branch with different leafs popped out of the Ginseng trunk. So perhaps it will grow two...
