Take the ficus from its own container and eliminate any soil that's clinging onto the roots of the bonsai. So do not worry about the old ground we are going to use new ground in a minute. You will have exposed the roots when the soil is removed. The brings us to step two.

In the event that you intend to make sure that it remains in precisely the same size pot that you had it then trim the roots. You may think that reducing the roots is unhealthy but it is really the contrary. When you trim the thick wooden like roots back the plant to develop feeder roots stimulates. Feeder roots are extremely narrow roots which are excellent for sucking up each of the nutrients that are delicious in the ground. Since we have a pot that is small, the bonsai will need all of the nutrients it could get. Never cut off over A of the roots at the time.

Put some drainage displays within the holes in the pot and add a wire so you could keep your bonsai tree in position. Fill the bottom of the brand new pot with earth that is rough. This ensures that the pot can be left by water but the finer earth stays in. Following the rough soil add the finer ground.

Put the Ficus Ginseng in the pot so that it says in cut and place of any excess wire, and wrap the wire across the trunk. Fill the pot with finer ground and make sure there aren't any air pockets in the ground. The atmosphere can cause the roots to dry out and effectively killing your bonsai tree.

You have successfully given your bonsai ficus the necessary room to live healthy and grow more. It is an ongoing process, it requires some discipline and dedication but it's also really interesting. Now you can sit back and enjoy your work!
