This iconic houseplant has become all the rage in recent years. Its striking large leaves make a statement when placed against a blank wall, or used as a specimen plant in an indoor garden. These plants grow at an average rate, so repot the ficus when the plant becomes root-bound. The fibrous roots of the ficus should have plenty of soil around them to hold enough moisture to hydrate the roots consistently.
This plant enjoys consistent water, bright, indirect light, and plenty of humidity in the environment. If the plant is in a low humidity environment, consider placing it on a humidity tray or surrounding it with other plants. Feed the plant with a fertilizer for house plants. Follow the instructions on the product label for frequency and strength. Trim the plant to help it keep your desired shape.
