The Ficus natalensis tree belongs to the Moraceae family. With its origin in Uganda and Kenya, this small to medium size plant initially appears as an epiphyte on a tree branch. Afterward, it sends down aerial roots that supply extra nutrition to the plant once it reaches the ground. Growing from 10 to 30 m in height, this adorable fast-growing deciduous shrub enters into its dormancy in the winter months. Ficus natalensis bonsai is known by its common name “Natal fig”. These trees have glossy green-colored leaves, making them stand out!
