Ficus (Fig Tree)

April 01, 2015 0 Comments

Ficus Common name fig tree. This is an excellent houseplant, well worth growing for its tree like habit, arching branches, and small neatly pointed leaves. It will occupy plenty off space when mature. Most plants improve air quality to some degree; Ficus Benjamina is particularly good at filtering formaldehyde, xylem and toluene. It is a genus of about 800 species of woody trees, shrubs and vines in the family Moraceae, native throughout the tropics with a few species extending into warm temperature zone. Most species are evergreen but some from temperature regions and areas with long dry seasons are deciduous.

Care

Avoid over watering your Ficus. The most common mistake people make is to add more water once leaves turn yellow. This is the opposite of what you should do.

Misting the leaves in the summer is advised

Select a site with bright, filtered light. Place your Ficus away from open doors and heaters. Also avoid large windows that change temperature between day and night. Room

Temperatures of around 65°f / 16°c --- 75°f / 24°c is ideal.
