The Ficus Bonsai is a favourite of beginners and experts alike and is the perfect Bonsai for indoors. Especially great for Canada, as this tree doesn't not like frost. In the summer, the Ficus is happy to be outside, ensuring the temperature stays above 15 degrees Celsius. The Ficus is a vigorous grower and easy to keep happy and growing healthy for many years. 

The Ficus available are the following species:

Tigerbark Ficus (Ficus Retusa)

Ficus Too-Little (Ficus Benjamina Dwarf)

Willow Leaf Ficus (Ficus Nerifolia)

Repotting is suggested every year or two under the age of 10. After the age of ten when the tree has matured and settled in, repotting every 3-5 years is fine.  The Ficus can withstand root pruning happily. If a thick growing trunk is desired, the Ficus can be left in a large pot with good drainage and not be pruned back until the desired thickness is achieved. After which the tree can be pruned back and will continue its growth.  

This Bonsai is probably your best bet as an indoor Bonsai, and you will enjoy it for years to come.

Great product

Great plant. Good price. Speedy delivery. ‘Nuff said


I’ve had this one for almost two years, i leave it outside during summer and take it in during winter. It grows vigorously no matter what season though that I have to lightly prune it every couple of months. There’s a noticeable increase in the diameter of the trunk as well. I did air layer it earlier this year so I now have two of them.


Wrapped really good and plant looks good
