Growing flourishing oval-shaped, dark green leaves, the Ficus ‘Ginseng’ bears a bulbous trunk, red-grey in colour with stripes resembling a tiger pattern. Featuring aerial roots which remain visible, its unique appearance makes it a clear choice to liven up your interior space. Please note, the featured pot cover is not included.


Native to Southeast Asia, the Ficus Ginseng is also called the ‘banyan fig’, ‘Taiwan ficus’, and ‘laurel fig’. Known for its striking appearance due to its roots which remain exposed above the surface of the ground, its effect results in a small tree standing on legs.

  • Soil: Well-draining, loam based potting compost
  • Position: Bright, indirect light or shade (sun will scorch leaves)

Deemed the ideal bonsai for beginners due to its low maintenance qualities, the Ficus ‘Ginseng’ naturally grows in warm, moist climates, therefore it is recommended to position this houseplant where it does not get too cold, or close to drafts which could take moisture from its leaves. Indirect light is ideal, with regular misting to maintain its humidity.
