Taking Care Of A Ginseng Bonsai - My Basic Tips
The Bonsai Ginseng is a fantastic beginner bonsai for many ages given its hardy nature and power to bounce back if it's been ignored.
Other names for this plant include Ficus ginseng and ginseng bonsai, aside from its name this is a wonderful plant as it's ideal for both indoor and outdoor states (excluding extreme temperatures).
You may often discover that when you get a Bonsai Ginseng plant it has pebbles or little rocks pasted to it around the base of the trunk. The explanation for this is somewhat baffling and perhaps has something related to department stores such as Walmart dressing up them to look pretty and consequently drive sales.
Quite often these plants come in an average looking pot (not a bonsai pot) too small to allow it to actually grow and prosper, which is what you as an owner will need.
The very first step following a Bonsai Ginseng purchase must be to eliminate the pebbles and if possible repot the plant into a better and somewhat larger quality pot in order to allow better drainage and room for the plants roots system to grow and take hold. The benefit of which further down the trail, better trunk and root system and will be a healthier, more dense leaves.

It is very important to give the plant a great soak by watering from over, and do this. This may remove salts and minerals from your soil and in a way will cleanse the plant.
Something I've learnt over time and through trial and error is that Bonsai Ginseng like to be left outside during summer and brought indoors during fall leading up to the cooler months of winter. The reason being the Ficus ginseng plant is of a tropical heritage where residence is in warmer areas of the entire world like Taiwan. Obviously, keeping the plant indoor or outside is determined by the temperatures which are typical in your area so it could possibly be worthwhile talking with your local nursery to get details for your own climate as well as your geographical area.
