Ficus retusa is one of the rare tree species that is able to grow indoors as well as outdoors. This is also the reason why it is one of the most common bonsai trees. Its small size and thick trunk make it a very decorative plant, ideal for modern designer homes. Although the true Ficus retusa tree mostly grows in the wild in South-East Asia, sometimes Ficus retusa branches are grafted to Ficus microcarpa to produce a type of Ficus ginseng. That ™s why the name seems so familiar to many plant lovers across the world.
Growing Zones: 9-11
Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring. We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture."
