Green Island FIcus
Botanical name: Ficus microcarpa
Green Island Ficus bonsai, like all other Ficus varieties, require warm and humid environments to thrive. The Green Island Ficus bonsai are great trees for beginners. They have beautiful waxy green oval or round leaves, great aerial roots, and tiny ornamental figs that grow on them throughout the season.
During the summer you can place this tree outside to cut back on maintenance and provide ideal conditions. Bonsai trees should never be placed in full sun, and should be place in partly shady area. In the winter they need to be brought inside once the temperatures start dropping below 50 degrees. Like most other tropical bonsai it's very important to water daily.
