Golden Gate Ficus Bonsai
Our Golden Gate Ficus comes directly from Northern China. Because they're tropical plants, they thrive in sunny areas. For best results, place your indoor bonsai near windows facing southeast or west. If you don't have a place where your tree can get proper sunlight, using a grow light for 10 to 12 hours daily is highly recommended. In warm weather, all indoor trees grow best outside. Never allow your indoor bonsai to freeze.
Your Golden Gate Ficus should be watered thoroughly every two or three days. Never let a bonsai totally dry out. Water your bonsai properly by using a watering can or hose attachment that has a fine-spray end. You should thoroughly soak your bonsai's soil. Water should be running out of the drain holes. Misting foliage periodically is recommended, but shouldn't be considered watering.
Fertilizing & General Care
Fertilizing your Golden Gate Ficus is desirable ?especially in springtime. General care is also important for beautiful bonsai maintenance. In order to keep their miniature shape, bonsai should be trimmed periodically.
Insects & Diseases
Insects and diseases can attack your Golden Gate Ficus Bonsai, so it's a good idea to inspect your bonsai regularly. A brisk spraying of the trunk and foliage periodically helps keep your tree clean. If any problems appear, most garden centres have products available for treatment.
