Tigerbark Ficus Bonsai Tree
This Tigerbark Ficus Bonsai Tree is potted in a bright red ramekin pot with drainage holes. It measures 4" in diameter x 2" deep. The tree is 8" tall from the soil line and the leaves span 8 1/2" from side to side. It is top-dressed with brown river rock and one small brown stone. This tigerbark is a great starter tree for someone interested in the art of Bonsai.
The Tigerbark Ficus is also known as a Ficus Retusa or Golden Gate Bonsai Tree. It gets the name tigerbark due to the grey to reddish bark dotted with small, horizontal flecks, similar to tiger-like markings. The oval leaves are small dark green and alternate up the stem. It is one of the most tolerant, versatile and trouble-free bonsai trees for indoor use. It grows fast and lends to pruning more often. A great tree for the Bonsai art enthusiast.
