Ginseng is the Chinese word for root and Ficus microcarpa Ginseng is uniquely identifiable by its strong, thick, exposed root system that looks more like a tree trunk than roots. These aerial root systems take years to grow, but over time they develop fascinating, primordial shapes. The leaves are small, dark green and oval-shaped.

Ficus microcarpa has many common names including Pot Belly Fig, Laurel Fig, Laurel Rubber, Curtain Fig and Strangling Fig. Ficus microcarpa Ginseng make excellent bonsai and look brilliant in any contemporary room setting.

Horty Hints

Retaining all that water weight! Ficus Ginseng stores water in its thick exposed roots, meaning you only need to water every 2-3 weeks.

Leaf drop may occur with insufficient light. Find a brighter spot out of the direct sunlight and your plant should quickly recover.

Give your Ficus a trim to maintain the desired shape, but be aware that sticky latex will ooze from the ends of the cut stems! This can be an irritant, so make sure to wash your hands if any comes into contact with your skin.
