aka Rubber Tree
Plant Nerd Level: Easy
Light- bright, indirect light.
Water- water every 7-10 days during the growing season. Allow the top 1-2” of soil to dry out between waterings. Make sure not to overwater your ficus and keep the watering consistent. Mist your plant regularly with a fine mist sprayer and wipe the leaves down to get rid of any dust.
Fertilizer- fertilize once a month during the growing season. Do not fertilize during the growing months.
Soil- plant your ficus in well-draining soil. A general mix with added perlite (3/4 general soil, 1/4 perlite) will give your plant the drainage it needs.
Plant Nerd Tips-
Make sure to rotate your ficus to help in grow evenly.
Keep your ficus away from drafts or air vents. Ficus like a consistent air temperature.
Prune any brown or yellow leaves off of your ficus. Use gloves when you prune- sap can irritate your skin.
