Care tips

//

Light

Most ficus trees enjoy bright indirect or filtered light with variegated varieties happily able to take medium light.

Water

Once Weekly. When watering, always check the top of the soil first. If the top of the soil is wet, don’t water as this means they have enough moisture. If the top of the soil feels dry to the touch, this indicates that they need water. Ficus doesnt like overly wet roots.

Humidity

High, if brown edges appear raise the humidity around the plant.

Temperature

Cannot tolerate low temperatures or drafts. They need to be kept in temperatures above 16 C  and actually prefer temperatures above 21 C.. Cold drafts from windows or doors will harm them, so make sure to place them somewhere where drafts will not be an issue.
