In a perfect world, this would be 5 stars. However, I live with lots of other folks and this plant attracts small hands. Also, if you don't get the water and the light spot- on, it'll drop leaves. C…
Super hardy. Loves going outside in bright shade/dappled sun during the summer. Takes a long time to grow but it becomes a small tree in your space.

How to care for Ficus Ginseng
Ficus Ginseng needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Ficus Ginseng may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Select your city to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Ficus Ginseng in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Ficus Ginseng after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
