Looking After A Ginseng Bonsai - My Basic Hints
The Bonsai Ginseng is an excellent beginner bonsai for many ages given its hardy nature and ability to bounce back if it has been neglected.
Other names for this plant include Ficus ginseng and ginseng bonsai, aside from its own name this is a great plant since it's ideal for both indoor and outside conditions (excluding extreme temperatures).
You'll generally discover that when you purchase a Bonsai Ginseng plant it has small stone or pebbles glued to it around the foot of the trunk. The cause of this is somewhat baffling and perhaps has something related to department stores like Walmart dressing them up to look pretty and therefore drive sales.
Fairly often these plants come in a average looking pot (not a bonsai pot) too little to permit it to actually grow and flourish, which will be what you as an owner will need.
The first step adhering to a Bonsai Ginseng purchase should be to take off the pebbles and if possible re-pot the plant into a better and somewhat bigger quality pot to be able to enable better drainage and room for the plants roots system to grow and take hold. The advantage of which further down the trail, better trunk and root system and will be a more healthy, more compact leaf.

It's important to give the plant a great soak and do this by watering from above. This will definitely remove and salts from the soil and in a way will cleanse the plant.
Something I have learnt over time and through trial and error is the fact that brought indoors during fall leading up to the cooler months of winter and Bonsai Ginseng like to be left outside during summer. The reason being that the Ficus ginseng plant is of a tropical heritage where house is in warmer areas of the world like Taiwan. Obviously, keeping the plant indoor or outdoors will depend on the temperatures that are typical in your neighborhood therefore it might be worthwhile talking with your local nursery to get details on your climate as well as your geographical area.

Eventually, pruning is something which will be tempting for most bonsai owner's that are new but it's important to not jump the gun particularly after having followed the steps above. Allowing the plant to actually take hold and root systems to grow is significant before pruning your Bonsai Ginseng. You do your research and can start pruning, but recall steady wins the race, once new buds start to form to the very best of the plant!
