Get the ficus out of its own container and eliminate any soil that is clinging onto the roots of the bonsai. We'll be using new ground in a minute so do not worry about the land that is old. You will have exposed the roots, when the soil is removed. The brings us to step two.

If you would like to keep it in the exact same size pot which you had it already then cut the roots. You may think that reducing the roots is unhealthy but it is actually the opposite. It provokes the plant to develop feeder roots, when you trim back the thick wooden like roots. Feeder roots have become thin roots which might be outstanding for sucking up each of the nutrients that are tasty in the soil. Since we've got a pot that is small, the bonsai is going to need all the nutrients it may get. Never cut off a lot more than A of the roots at that time.

Place some screens that are drainage on the holes in the pot and add a wire so you can keep your bonsai tree in place. Fill the bottom of the new pot with coarse soil. This ensures that the pot can be left by water but the finer soil remains in. After the ground that is coarse add the finer ground.

Place the Ficus Ginseng in the pot and wind the wire across the trunk so it says in cut and place of any excess wire. Fill the pot with finer land and be sure there aren't any air pockets in the ground. The atmosphere efficiently killing your bonsai tree and can cause the roots to dry out.

You have successfully given your bonsai ficus the required room grow even more and to live healthy. It is also really fun although it's an ongoing process, it takes commitment and some discipline. You can now settle back and relish your work!
