    Hello everyone! I was at Home Depot the other day, and I came across this 'Bonsai". Im not sure if it really is a bonsai though. Please help me identify it!

    What is this?

    Hi and welcome to the forum! The tree is a pot belly ficus. It's called a gensing ficus also.
    Happy Holly Daze!

    What is this?

    urthman is correct, i've also heard it called a bayan fig..
    i picked 1up last year but it lost all but 1 of its leaves,

    i did a bit of interweb browsing and these trees dont like draughty places, direct sunlight ?(not sure about that) too little water(soil needs to be moist all the time ?)

    mine still only has one leaf but its finally starting to get a little bigger.
    good luck with it

    I have one of these! Dr Sanity, my Fig has a few hours sunlight a day, Pot Belly Figs can go for ages without water- weeks and weeks but prefer to be kept moist. This plant is very simple to look after!<br><br>Post edited by: Hanlovesbonsais, at: 2009/04/12 04:43
