Golden Gate Ficus
The ficus is one of the most recognized plant species in existence. Most people have seen a Ficus microcarpa specimen at some point in their lives – but did you know that it is actually a fig tree? Not only that but figs are not technically fruits, they are inverted flowers. But back to the bonsai – these trees have been around on planet Earth for many thousands of years, which means just having one in your home is like having a miniature piece of living history, and who wouldn’t want that?
Not only is the ficus millennial old, it is also the perfect beginner tree. You can overwater, you can underwater, and this tree will bounce right back and forgive you. If you’ve had that bonsai urge but you’ve been on the fence, the Golden Gate Ficus is a safe bet for taking the leap.
*Ficus leaves are poisonous when ingested so use caution around children and pets.
