2.) Fertilizer. Plants also needs vitamins that’s why you need to put fertilizer on specific days to make it healthy. With good care, your ficus bonsai trees will grow with healthy leaves.

3.) Watering your bonsai trees. You have to water your plant and don’t allow it dried up. It is easy to check once its getting dry since you can see if the soil is wet. Normally, soil is dark brown when it is wet and light brown if dry.
