Take the ficus from its container and remove any soil that is clinging onto the roots of the bonsai. We'll use new earth in a minute so don't worry about the old ground. When the soil is removed you'll have exposed the roots. The brings us to step two.

Should you need to make sure that it remains in the exact same size pot that you had it then cut the roots. You may think that reducing the roots is unhealthy but it really is actually the reverse. When you trim back the thick wooden like roots it stimulates the plant to develop feeder roots. Feeder roots are extremely narrow roots that are exceptional for sucking up each of the tasty nutrients in the soil. The bonsai will need all of the nutrients it can get, since we've a small pot. Never cut off more than A of the roots at the time.

Place some displays that are drainage over the holes in the pot in order to keep your bonsai tree in position and add a wire. Fill the bottom of the brand new pot with ground that is coarse. This guarantees that water can leave the pot but the finer ground stays in. After the coarse soil add the finer ground.

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

You have successfully given your bonsai ficus the necessary room to live healthy and grow even more. It is a continuous process, it takes commitment and some discipline but it's also really interesting. Now you can sit back and revel in your hard work!
