Native to Asia and Australia, Ficus ‘Ginseng’ is a cultivar used extensively in bonsai for its bulbous, thick roots reminiscent of ginseng that rise out of the ground. It has small evergreen leaves and is a popular houseplant for its ease of care and elegant growth. Although the Ficus plant grows naturally in lowland tropical forests, it can thrive in a large range of environments. In its natural habitat, this ficus grows to a large and stately tree up to 100ft tall, so indoor growing may require pruning.
Although it was determined that Ficus Ginseng is effective at removing common household air toxins formaldehyde and xylene, it is also a source of allergies, especially for people allergic to latex. Not recommended for pet owners.

Ficus Ginseng Care Tips
Light: Ideally, keep your Ficus Ginseng in a spot that gets bright, indirect sunlight
Water: Keep the soil moist, but avoid overwatering in winter. Aim to water when the top two inches of soil are dry
Humidity: Ficus Ginseng enjoys high humidity. Misting their leaves or placing their pot atop a moistened tray of gravel can help to increase humidity around the plant.
Feed: Use our organic indoor plant fertilizer to keep your plant looking healthy! Ensure you dilute the mixture by fifty percent with water before applying monthly.
Toxicity: Poisonous to pets! If you have latex allergies, wear gloves when handling any ficus plant material.
