Golden Gate Ficus
Ficus microcarpa, or Fig Tree, is a beloved bonsai subject – favored by experienced enthusiasts as well as beginners – because of its incredibly forgiving nature to newbie error (we’ve all been there!) as well as its thick, lush foliage and textured, interesting bark patterns. The leaves are small and glossy, lending themselves to shaping for almost any form, including cascade, umbrella, and informal upright. Plus, this vigorous grower offers near immediate reward for your shaping and pruning efforts.
If you’ve been hesitant to jump feet first into bonsai, ficus offers the perfect balance of beauty and convenience. It is extremely easy to care for, and any room in the home is brightened by a living piece of nature. And because the Fig Tree is literally a 60 million year old species, you’re also getting a slice of living history. Hesitate no longer, and get your hands on this beautiful, low-maintenance conversation piece
*Ficus leaves are poisonous when ingested so use caution around children and pets.
