Excellent indoor bonsai specimen as ficus are one of the few species of trees that can adapt to low light conditions. Complete indoor bonsai specimen with premium lava rock soil. Comes in high quality engraved bonsai pot.
Certainly Ficus Microcarpa (This variety) is my first pick for a beginner to the art. A very close second would be ginseng ficus. I only say the they are both equally hardy trees. I favor the Ficus Microcarpa.
Simply because there is more opportunity to wire branches and shape the canopy. Both are great hardy trees for people just jumping into bonsai. If you have a horticultural background then you can work with more advanced material.
