Willow Leaf Ficus Bonsai
Botanical name: Ficus salicaria
Willow Leaf Ficus make excellent bonsai. They grow fast and adapt to most growing environments. They have alternating dark green leaves that are narrow. New leaves are bronze to pinkish in color and usually curl and straighten as they mature.
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.
