Leaves falling off of GEnsing Grafted Ficus Bonsai Tree

Hello I am new to the Gardening forum community and have a question regarding my Bonsai tree. I read in the care guide that about 20 percent of the leaves will fall of the tree when set up in a new location. I just wanted some opinions about how the tree looks and if it looks healthy.

Thanks!!

Re: Leaves falling off of GEnsing Grafted Ficus Bonsai Tree

Even though you spelled it the way it is spelled on the tree label, it is actually ginseng ficus.

It looks fine. Ficus is prone to dropping a lot of leaves when conditions (especially light levels) are changed. The good news about that is that since they readily drop leaves, they also readily grow them back.

Can the blinds on that window be raised? Ficus does well as an indoor tree, but it does like lots of light.
