Ficus Benj

available in nursery plastic pot 

Light: Ficus prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate some partial shade. Harsh, direct sunlight may burn the leaves.

Water: Water when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. Keep the soil moist at all times, but do not over water as this will cause leaf drop.

Temperature: Ideal temperatures are 16-24°C. Avoid cold droughts.

Humidity: No specific requirements, although the occasional misting wouldn't go amiss.

Feed: Apply a weak dose of a fertilizer once or twice a month during the growing season.

Care tips: Insufficient light or incorrect watering can trigger leaf drop. Adjust as necessary and your plant should quickly recover. Trim to maintain shape, but be aware that sticky latex will ooze from the ends of the cut stems. This can be an irritant, therefore wash your hands immediately if any comes into contact with your skin.

Air Purifying: This plant filters airborne toxins and is part of our clean air plant collection.
