Maintaining A Ginseng Bonsai - My Hassle-free Suggestions
The Bonsai Ginseng is a fantastic beginner bonsai for all ages given its hardy nature and ability to bounce back if it is often discounted.
Other names for this particular plant include Ficus ginseng and ginseng bonsai, irrespective of its own name it is a wonderful plant as it is appropriate 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 bottom of the trunk. The explanation for this is somewhat baffling and perhaps has something related to department stores like Wal-Mart dressing them up to look pretty and consequently drive sales.
Quite often these plants come in a average looking pot (not a bonsai pot) too small to allow it to actually grow and flourish, which is what you as an owner will need.
Step one following a Bonsai Ginseng purchase should be to take off the pebbles and if possible repot the plant into a slightly bigger and better quality pot in order to allow 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 leaves.

It really is very important to provide the plant a great soak and do this by watering from above. This may remove salts and minerals from the 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 autumn prior to the cooler months of winter. The reason being that the Ficus ginseng plant is of a tropical heritage where house is in warmer parts of the planet like Taiwan. Clearly, keeping the plant indoor or outside is determined by your geographical area so it could possibly be worthwhile speaking together with your local nursery to get details to your climate, and also the temperatures which are typical in your neighborhood.

Eventually, pruning is something that will be tempting for most new bonsai owner's but it's important to not jump the gun particularly after having followed the steps above. Letting the plant to really take hold and root systems to grow is significant before pruning your Bonsai Ginseng. Once new friends begin to form towards the very top of the plant you do your research and can start pruning, but remember steady wins the race!
