Our recommended Ficus retusa indoor bonsai

The Ficus retusa is a member of the fig family, a fabulous indoor bonsai renowned for being easy to grow. A bonsai vareity which will tolerate darker positions thus perfect for rooms with lower light.
Ideal for a first time beginners bonsai and for properties with less natural daylight.
Furthermore this bonsai demonstrates superb character – wonderful deep green shiny leaves, small fruits and my favourite – the wonderful aerial root system.
This beautiful tree has fabulous disease resistance and buds back very quickly following pruning.
The leaf size of the ficus is larger than some of the other indoor species, consequently we find that it is best grown as a slightly larger bonsai to achieve better proportions and perspective.
An extremely powerful and well defined bonsai which is not frost hardy so does need to be over-wintered indoors.
The Fig symbolises fertility and love.
The Bible indicates that the Fig tree has spiritual meaning – the tree that signifies health both spiritually and physically.
A tree with energy & vitality.
