Ficus retusa – Ginseng
Note: We do not ship plants. You can only purchase for a “pick-up” order.
*measurements are an approximate size of the pot it comes in
🌤 the Retusa thrives in bright light - if your plant is inside it should be kept right in front of a window - if you keep it outside, it can acclimate to direct sun but you may see a little sunburn on the leaves until then - also if kept outside it will need to be protected from frost and cooler temperatures
💦 allow the top 1/4-1/2 of soil dry between watering - you don’t want the soil to completely dry out but you also don’t want the soil to stay consistently moist as the thick trunks can rot
🧩 the Retusa also thrives in humidity and can put out amazing aerial roots in the right conditions
🐞 Ficus can be susceptible to mealy bug and scale – this can happen when plants are not getting their lighting and watering needs met, and sometimes it just happens
