This is not a bonsai.

Use any fertlizer for indoor potted plants - or ask your local nursery.

Why would I recommend bonsai fertilizer for something that is not bonsai?

Of course, it is for ficus Bonsai. It is not a generic houseplant forum though.

The discussion was more whether bonsai need a different fetilizer than other plants. I do not think so.
