Bonsai Ginseng in Clay 5.5"
Ginseng ficus (Ficus retusa) is one variety of this large group of fig trees. Native to Southeast Asia, the ginseng ficus is also called banyan fig, Taiwan ficus, and laurel fig. It is most striking in appearance because it grows thick roots that stay exposed above the surface of the ground. As a bonsai, the effect is of a small tree standing on legs.
