Bonsai Ficus

SUBMERGING

10 minutes every 2 weeks

I like to be submerged ¾ of my moss ball in room temperature drinkable water every 2 weeks indoors. If outdoor consider once a week. if you collect water from rain occasionally, I'll thrive.

 

While submerging splash or spray with water my leaves. 

 

Please leave me in the water for 10 to 15 minutes, put a timer so you don't forget about me. Then take me out, and let the water drain for about minutes in an empty container or the sink.

I might need water more often during summertime or less often during winter.

Always weigh me!.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

Medium to High Shaded

 

The more light I receive, the more I will grow, but never expose me to direct sunlight. 

Don’t put me in a dark place all day long nor outside in the sun all day long.

HUMIDITY REQUIREMENTS

Moderate to High

I thrive on humidity. If your humidity level is less than 50%, then consider these options: 

1. Put pebbles on my plate with a little bit of water and spray water on me at least twice a week.

2. Consider getting a humidifier to increase the level.

TEMPERATURE

65-90 degrees

65-90 degrees If below or above, please put me inside. Do not place me under the A/C vent nor near a TV.

IDEAL PLACE

Inside or Outdoor shaded

 

Place me inside with indirect light, the brighter the better or outdoor shaded. Put a plate under me, but it can’t be tight covering all the moss ball. My ecosystem needs ventilation. If I catch rain just once a week, I'm fine. Otherwise, I could be overwatered and be damaged.

COMMON PROBLEMS

Over-pruning can be fatal

RECOMMENDATION

Find the best practice for the exact species as some prefer to be cut back more, and some are more sensitive.

PLANT FOOD

Once a month.

Mix Bonsai food once a month in water and then proceed to submerge me.
