Taking Good Care Of A Ginseng Bonsai - My Hassle-free Suggestions
The Bonsai Ginseng is an excellent beginner bonsai for many ages given its hardy nature and power to bounce back if it has been ignored.
Other names for this plant contain Ficus ginseng and ginseng bonsai, regardless of its name it's a great plant since it is suited to both indoor and outside conditions (excluding excessive temperatures).
You may often find that when you buy a Bonsai Ginseng plant it's pebbles or little stone pasted around the base of the trunk to it. The cause of this is baffling and perhaps has something to do with department stores for example Walmart dressing up them to look pretty and hence drive sales.
Quite often these plants come in a average looking pot (not a bonsai pot) too little to allow it to really grow and thrive, which will be what you as an owner will need.
The initial step following a Bonsai Ginseng purchase must be to take off the pebbles and if possible re-pot the plant right into a better and slightly bigger quality pot so that you can enable better drainage and room for the plants roots system to grow and take hold. The power of which further down the path, better trunk and root system and will be a fitter, more compact leaves.

It's essential to offer a great soak to the plant by watering from over and do this. This will definitely remove salts and minerals from the soil and in a way will cleanse the plant.
Something I've learnt over time and through trial and error is that Bonsai Ginseng like to be left outside during summer and brought inside during fall leading up to the cooler months of winter. The reason being the Ficus ginseng plant is of a tropical heritage where house is in warmer parts of the world like Taiwan. Obviously, keeping the plant indoor or outside will depend on where you live as well as the temperatures which are common in your area so it can be worthwhile speaking together with your local nursery to get details to your climate.

Finally, pruning is a thing that will be tempting for most new bonsai owner's but after having followed the steps above, it really is important to not jump the gun particularly. Enabling the plant to actually take root and hold systems to grow is before pruning your Bonsai Ginseng important. Once new buddies begin to form to the very top of the plant you'll be able to begin pruning, but remember steady wins the race and do your research!
