TOPIC: Soil Ficus Ginseng

Soil Ficus Ginseng 10 months 3 weeks ago #30861

Hi First I would like to salute this forum and the members.
I have a question what soil do you recommend to use in a ficus ginseng? 100% akadama? or 80% akadama and 20% organic soil?or another one?
My doubt is if i put only akadama where the bonsai will catch the nutrients?
I am sorry for the basic question and thank you.

Hello and welcome :)
You got to fertilize it to give it nutritients.
I use pure zeolite and fertilize every week.

thanks for the response.
I thought to put 20% normal soil and 80% akadama what do you think?
About fertilizer i am thinking to put osmocote do you know? it´s inorganic and chemical but slow release?
About natural fertilizer do you know any?
zeolite i don´t know but it´s always a option

I dont think there is special soil for ginseng but good drainage mix is always better. If your soil is low or no organic you will have to fertilize quite often.
