Ficus is a pan-tropical genus of trees, shrubs, and vines occupying a wide variety of ecological niches, most are evergreen, but some deciduous species are endemic to areas outside of the tropics and to higher elevations. Ficus plants range from large trees to woody shrubs to trailing vines. The ficus comes in many shapes and sizes that make this a popular focal point in your home. Most ficus bonsai trees can produce aerial roots in their natural habitat, which are often presented in appealing bonsai creations with many aerial root pillars or root over rock styles. To enable aerial root growth in our homes a humidity of nearly 100% must be achieved artificially.
