Description: This month's Bonsai has been chosen by Liana specifically for its climbing habit, unique species of Ficus and evergreen display. I started this Bonsai from a small cutting with immature roots from our large vine which sprawls across one end of our nursery. This Ficus grows extremely fast in summer and almost not at all any other time.

It can be difficult to set roots on these cuttings and this Ficus species seeds require complicated pretreatment for germination. To obtain an interesting, thick trunk and soil hugging overhang I built a raised area covered in Baby’s Tears ground cover. The aim is to guide the overhanging growth so that it attaches to the pot sides and the canopy growth to expand and form a weeping habit. This Fig has beautiful, small round leaves that are dimpled and raspy. It requires regular small trims and control of ground cover to prevent overgrowth. It’s very easy to care for, long lived, doesn’t have pests and doesn’t need full sun.

Your responsibility for this Bonsai will be:
1. Must live outside with filtered daylight
2. Must be watered every day from October to May

All Bonsai Palace Bonsai are presented with a Bonsai Birth Certificate and detailed care instructions.  Also, we offer a free ‘feed and groom’ for each Bonsai within three months of purchase.  Just visit Liana at the Palmyra Market on a Sunday for free Bonsai advice.
