This extraordinary plant will certainly be a talking point! Ficus plants are one of the most popular plants for beginners to bonsai. Part of the Mulberry family there are many different varieties, but this one has amazing swollen roots that stand above the soil and pot, which are beautiful in their own way. Then on top, there is a mass of glossy, smooth, deep green oval leaves on short erect stems. Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a black plastic pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.
Bonsai trees are captivating and beautiful, and aren't as hard to grow as you might think as long as certain rules are followed. They need light, warmth, and water to do well. Place then in a light spot away from cold draughts with a constant temperature. Water with tepid soft water, or rainwater when the soil is just surface dry, - do the finger test regularly. They like a humid atmosphere so misting the leaves will help, and lightly trim regularly to keep the shape. If you move these plants, or there is a drop in temperature then they can drop their leaves, this can happen in the winter, but usually they will reshoot. Please note these plants are not covered by our plant guarantee.

Damaged or Perished on arrival
We pride ourselves on the quality of our products, and will never knowingly send out sub-standard or faulty products. We use trusted shipping partners, Royal Mail and DPD, because in our experience they are the best. However, accidents do happen, especially when you are in the business of selling glass and plants!
Unfortunately, we cannot take responsibility for plants that perish or deteriorate once they are in your aquarium or terrarium - the reason is simple, all aquarium and terrarium set-ups are different, and all plants have different needs. Doing your research ahead of time is all part of the learning process, and we hope our website provides enough information for you to make an informed decision. If you need more information about a product, or are unsure if it will work with your set-up, just get in touch, we won't bite!
Evolution Aqua Aquascaper aquariums are shipped directly from the manufacturers warehouse. Delivery is within 14 days, but normally sooner than this. There is an additional delivery charge on all aquariums of £49.99 due to the size and nature of the product. You will receive a call to advise of a delivery date so you can be in to accept delivery.
All other aquariums can be shipped but may be classed in our 'Heavy Shipping' rate if the total order is more than 20kg.
Hardscape & other heavy materials
We pride ourselves on our extensive range of hardscape, but we understand it is not always possible to come and visit to touch and feel stone and wood in person. Please get in touch with us via phone (+44 (0) 1603 761900) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have a particular layout or shape(s) you are trying to source.
Given the nature of hardscape (ie it's heavy and expensive to ship!), we have had to cap free shipping at 20kg. The reason is simple, if a customer buys 3 x 15kg bags of gravel and 15kg of stone, this costs us over £50 to ship to you - meaning we make little, or nothing on your order - unfortunately, to stay alive as a business we do need to make a profit so we can carry on offering quality products to our customers.
