The Ficus genus belongs to a family of mulberry plants and they are the most popular bonsai around the world.
Winters are a time of dormancy for all plants, and this can be seen especially in bonsai, who are particularly sensitive to a change in temperature.
Here are some things to keep in mind while caring for a ficus bonsai in winters:
There is no need to fertilise your ficus bonsai in winters. It is a dormant time for them and you should embrace it by letting it be. It may now grow new leaves, and it might shed some old leaves, but just remember, it is waiting to surprise you at the start of spring!
