Ginseng Ficus Bonsais are very hardy and easy to take care of. Many beginning bonsai enthusiasts choose these trees to raise. They grow dense foliage, and they have very thick trunks. Also known as the Ficus Retusa, this bonsai is a tree in the fig family Moraceae. It is widely planted as a shade tree. Regular pruning is needed to retain the tree’s shape. Prune back to 2 leaves after 6 to 8 leaves have grown. Leaf pruning reduces the leaf’s size. To get thicker trunks, let the bonsai ficus grow freely for one to two years. Repot the tree during spring every other year using a basic soil mixture. Take this time to prune the roots as well if you would like to maintain its size
