Ficus Benjamanica Exotica 21cm Pot 90cm Tall
The exotic Ornamental Fig, Ficus benjamina is a houseplant that's currently bang on trend and on everyone's wish list. It adds a distinctive, tropical feel to your home.
The glossy, rich green leaves are held on top of the stems, and over time, the slender branches will begin to weep, softening the plant and making a definite talking point.
Not just a pretty face, Ficus is well known for helping keep the air in your home clean as it filters out pollutants keeping it fresh and clean - according to NASA, weeping figs fight formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene, found in furniture, fireplace smoke, and common household products.
Very easy to care for, once you have found the perfect place for your ficus, you can more or less leave it alone and let it do its 'thing' as long as it's kept out of draughts.
Reaching around 2.5m, your plant is supplied as an established specimen, 90cm tall in a 21cm pot.
Once it has found the right place, don't move your fig around as they dislike disturbance.
Find a bright spot away from direct sunlight, not close to a radiator or other heat source, and away from draughts.
Water with tepid water when the soil is just starting to dry out on the surface, but don't let it dry out completely - during the winter you can reduce watering.
Mist the leaves in the summer months, and feed with a liquid fertiliser during the growing season.
If your Ficus benjamina begins to lose its leaves it may be too dry or in a draught. Plunge the pot into a bucket of water for an hour to let it soak and then move in front of a light window.
