|Our Special Bonsai of the Month:
This is Liana's special
Bonsai, one which she personally feels is worthy
of note because it is a promising specimen,
excellent value, and shows character.
Name: Weeping Fig
Scientific Name: Ficus benjamina
Date of Birth: Approximately 1991
Cultivation: Prefers rich, moist soil in a protected, sunny position. Drought and frost tender. Weeping Fig - a tree symbolizing health, vitality and youth. It is sacred in many parts of the world
Height: 54 cm
Age: 28 years
Pot: 32 x 24 x 8cm Ceramic, rectangular, glazed, blue,
I started forming this Weeping Fig into a Bonsai several years ago. It was 1.2 metres tall and had a beautiful leaf colour, shape and gloss. I wanted to reduce the height and keep the knobbly trunk and exposed roots. With careful training over several years I created a canopy at 54 cm. With continual leaf trims and branch shaping this Bonsai will give itís new owner years of beauty and an easy care life.
This Bonsai grows very rapidly in summer and autumn, then slows down in winter. Spring growth is very slow and requires protection from pests such as sucking insects (thrip and scale). Itís not especially thirsty or hungry, the leaves are heart shaped, pale/dark green, glossy and small. It makes an ideal Bonsai pet for anyone needing a low care Bonsai that is harmonious to peace and tranquillity.
If you are not sure of your responsibility for our May Bonsai Of the Month, please note:
1. Prefers to live in a protected, part shade area but outdoors.
2. Prefers to be watered deeply once a week, much less often in winter and more often in summer.
3. A slow growing Fig during autumn and winter, it will require very little maintenance.
All Bonsai Palace Bonsai are presented with a Bonsai Birth Certificate and detailed care instructions. Also, we offer a free Ďfeed and groomí for each Bonsai within three months of purchase. Just visit Liana at the Palmyra Market on a Sunday for free Bonsai advice.
