Ficus benjamina variegated in the growing pot
The Ficus comes from Southeast Asia, mainly from Indonesia,
and belongs to the Moraceae family (mulberry types). Ideally the
plant should be kept at a temperature of approximately 18 ºC all
year round. Keep the Ficus in a constant environment with plenty
of light all year round but avoid placing it in direct sunlight. There
also needs to be high atmospheric humidity. Insufficient light, too
much draught or a sudden change in temperature can cause
yellowing and leaf loss. Give the Ficus plenty of water but
take care to prevent saturation and do not allow a clod of
dry earth to accumulate around the roots since both cause
the plant to shed its leaves. Feed the plant with normal plant
food while the new leaves are growing. To keep the plant in
good condition spray the leaves regularly to remove any dust.
It is a good idea to replace the potting compost on an annual
basis. The plant itself only needs to be repotted once every
two or three years.
The best tips for caring for your plant:
Good light, but no bright sunlight.
Ideal temperature 18 - 20º C.
Keep damp, compost must not dry out.
Do not leave excess water in saucer/dish.
Apply fertiliser twice a month.
Pot on annually.
Keep out of draughts.
