Ficus Microcarpa is an obvious favorite for bonsai lovers. It's bulbous roots make wonderful scenes and add to that "big tree shrunk down" style that bonsai aficionados crave. A very easy bonsai to care for and grow, it does well in shade or partial full sun. It is also fairly drought tolerant, requiring water only when it's soil dries. Here in south Florida, we water our Ficus Microcarpa once a week.
This version of bonsai is a grafted plant. This means an older branch of another ficus was grafted to a selected root stock. This is an aesthetic choice only and does not effect plant health. The results are smaller, rounder, darker leaves and a plant with a more tree like appearance.
