Get the ficus from its own container and eliminate any soil that's clinging onto the roots of the bonsai. We are going to be using new earth in a minute so don't worry about the old earth. You'll have exposed the roots when the soil is removed. The brings us to step two.

In the event that you need to make sure that it remains in the same size pot that you had it already then cut the roots. You may think that trimming the roots is unhealthy but it is really the reverse. When you trim back the thick wooden like roots it stimulates the plant to develop feeder roots. Feeder roots have become thin roots which are outstanding for sucking up all of the delicious nutrients in the soil. Since we have a small pot, the bonsai is going to need each of the nutrients it can get. Never cut off a lot more than A of the roots during the time.

Place some screens that are drainage on the holes in the pot to help you keep your bonsai tree in place, and add a wire. Fill the underparts of the the new pot with earth that is coarse. This ensures that water can leave the pot but the finer earth stays in. Subsequent to the coarse earth add the finer earth.

Set the Ficus Ginseng in the pot and wind the wire across the trunk therefore it says in place and cut of any excess wire. Fill the pot with finer earth and make certain there are not any air pockets in the soil. The air can cause the roots to dry out and efficiently killing your bonsai tree.

You have successfully given your bonsai ficus the required room grow even more and to live healthy. It is also really entertaining although it is an ongoing process, it requires dedication and some discipline. Now you can settle back and enjoy your hard work!
