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.
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.
The "Monstera Deliciosa" is a tropical plant originating from the Tropical Americas and is part of the Araceae family. Its name, as one might guess, comes from the Latin meaning “abnormal” because of its odd-looking, perforated leaves. The “deliciosa” part of its name comes from the pineapple-like fruit it bears in the wild.
The Monstera has many names such as Ceriman; Custard plant; Indian ivy; Fruit salad plant and Mexican breadfruit but is perhaps best known under its nickname “Swiss Cheese Plant”.
It’s finally time for that staycation.
The bags are packed.
The emails are set to OOO.
You’ve turned off all electronics (and the immersion!)
….Oh, wait what about the plants?!!
