Ficus bonsai have been meticulously trained for wonderful trunk movement, with each tree individually hand-wired to create the elegant trunk swirl. Ease of care and an ability to succeed in a variety of light conditions make the Golden Gate Ficus perfectly suited for bonsai.
Best results are achieved by watering with a small watering can or hose attachment with a fine-spray nozzle so that water cascades are softer, avoiding blasts to bonsai and potting soil. To water, thoroughly soak the container's soil until water runs out of the bottom drainage holes. Periodic misting of the tree's foliage is also recommended
