Banyan Tree 'S-shape'

Ficus microcarpa

The Banyan Tree originates in southern China, Malaysia and Taiwan. The tree is a very popular bonsai tree. If you do not have experience with the bonsai method, we recommend starting with a Banyan tree as it is considered to be one of the easiest kinds to care for.

The hallmark of the 'S-shape' is the beautiful trunk that is cultivated, so that it grows in the shape of an 'S'. The plant is grafted with small crowns of oval dark green leaves all the way up the trunk.

A Banyan tree 'S-shape' adds a very personal expression to your interior design, and over time you will be able to shape the plant in exactly the direction you want.

Botanical name: Ficus microcarpa



Watering: The Banyan Tree 'S-shape' likes if you water it regularly. If the plant dries out completely, it might drop its beautiful leaves, so it is a good rule of thumb if you water your plant when the top half of the soil is dry. Check your plant once a week to see if it needs water.

Location: Your Banyan tree should be placed in a bright spot. It will appreciate if you put it near a south-facing window where it is primarily in indirect light. Do not place your Banyan tree in a dark corner, as it does not thrive without light. And you shouldn't move the tree around your home too much - it can stress the plant to start dropping its leaves.

Temperature: Your plant thrives at temperatures between 15-30°C.
