Ficus bonsai trees will grow decently in low light, but thrive in high light conditions. Prune back to 2-4 leaves after 6-10 leaves have grown. We recommend using a dull pruning tool on Ficus bonsai trees, as a clean cut made by a sharp tool tends to bleed more than a dull cut.Water moderately, increasing in summer and decreasing in winter. Many Ficus bonsai trees are very tolerant of being over or under watered, which makes them ideal for beginners. The Ficus bonsai tree also enjoys a daily misting to maintain humidity. Repot every 2-3 years, although some will grow rapidly enough that yearly repotting may be necessary. The best time is before a new growth spurt, especially in spring, but Ficus bonsai trees can literally be repotted any time of year if reasonable after-care is given. Roots can easily be pruned by half. Basic bonsai soil is recommended, although Ficus bonsai trees tolerates many soil conditions.
