Ficus Bonsai Tree is a very common houseplant. With over 800 species and 2,000 varieties of ficus, everyone can find the right tree for their bonsai. One of my favorite varieties of ficus is a dwarf ficus also known as Ficus benjamina.
If you are a beginner, ficus benjamina is one of the best choices. It is very forgiving, easily adapts to varieties of conditions, has naturally small leaves and strong roots, making bonsai training much easier. Ficus Benjamina is also commonly known as Weeping Fig, Benjamina Fig, Benjamin’s Fig, Dwarf Ficus Tree, Java Fig, or just Ficus Tree.
Ficus Bonsai Tree is native to south and southeast Asia and Australia. Like most tropical plants, Ficus Bonsai likes warm and humid weather and needs to be protected from freezing temperatures. It can be grown outside if you live in a tropical or sub-tropical climates. If you live in the area where temperatures drop below 60 degrees, it is best to keep your ficus bonsai indoors.
