zFicus Compacta 1
We estimate this tree is about ten years old. It is originally from Florida and we have been growing and developing it here six or seven years. Winters under lights and summers outdoors. All of our trees, including this one, are one of a kind. This means that the tree pictured is the one you'll receive. It is growing in one of our Tie pots, which are designed for developing pre-bonsai. As you can see, it is very well developed and ready to be transplanted into a bonsai pot. Or, if you prefer, you can continue to grow it as is.
Ficus are our favorite bonsai for indoor growing, or indoor/outdoor growing when temperatures permit. Watering and other care is the same for most tropical bonsai, though Ficus (especially Ficus compacta varieties) tend to be stronger than most. For more detailed care information for Ficus and other bonsai, we suggest you visit Bonsai Empire.
