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

If you want to keep it in exactly the same size pot that you just had it then cut the roots. You may think that trimming the roots is unhealthy but it really is actually the reverse. When you trim the thick wooden like roots back it stimulates the plant to develop feeder roots. Feeder roots are extremely thin roots which might be excellent for sucking up each of the tasty nutrients in the earth. Since we have a pot that is small, the bonsai will need each of the nutrients it can get. Never cut off a lot more than A of the roots at the time.

Put some drainage displays on the holes in the pot in order to 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 the pot can be left by water but the finer soil remains in. Following the earth that is coarse add the finer earth.

Put the Ficus Ginseng in the pot therefore it says in cut and place of any excess wire and wind the wire round the trunk. Fill the pot with finer land and make sure there aren't any air pockets in the earth. The atmosphere can cause the roots to dry out and efficiently killing your bonsai tree.

You've successfully given your bonsai ficus the necessary room to live healthy and grow some more. It is an ongoing procedure, it requires dedication and some discipline but it's also really enjoyable. You can now settle back and revel in your work!
