Ficus retusa is one of the most suitable plants for indoor bonsai. This tree can grow up to 10m high in the wild. It can also be grown as a shrub or a small tree indoors.
Bonsai is a term to describe the Japanese horticultural art of growing dwarfed plants and shrubs in small pots. Botanists believe this art originated in China more than 4000 years ago.
The name ficus bonsai (or Ginseng ficus) сovers a large variety of plants. All of them are really simple to maintain due to their small size and unpretentiousness. The Ficus retusa tree has dark-green oval-shaped leaves and a thick trunk with tiger-like stripes. It naturally grows in the Malay Archipelago and Malesia floristic region.
