    Care info

    SUN: Prefers medium-to-bright, indirect light. Place it at the interior of a bright room or near a window with sheer curtains. Light that is too low or too direct will discolor the leaves.

    WATER: Water generously when the top 50-75% of soil has dried, allowing all excess water to drain out. Use of non-tap water is recommended. Reduce frequency during Fall and Winter.

    AIR: Mimic their native tropical environment with temperatures between 65º-85º and a high humidity. A few easy tricks to boost humidity are:

    • Misting the leaves 3-4x per week with non-tap water
    • Adding a humidifier nearby
    • Creating a pebble tray that lives underneath the pot

    Be sure to keep your Ficus away from drafty rooms, windows, and vents.
