A rare and sought after ficus, this is the national tree of India because supposedly Buddha was under a Ficus Audrey when he received enlightenment. Also can grow to be one of the largest trees in the world in terms of canopy coverage. It has very beautiful, velvety leaves and is a perfect plant for bright homes. This ficus is a great vertical plant that will add just the right amount of green to your home!
Ficuses are well known as houseplants, much of which can be attributed to their role as large specimen plants in the home. There are a wide variety of leaf shapes, sizes, colors, and textures, but most ficuses are woody plants that over time develop a strong trunk and tree-like branching structure. The Fiddle Leaf Fig, one of the most common species, prefers strong indirect light, but most of the varieties you’ll find would prefer at least some direct sun, and many thrive in as much as full exposure in a southern window. Ficuses have a reputation for dropping leaves after moving locations or changes to their routine, but this is also quite variable depending on the species. Most prefer a thorough watering followed by an almost thorough drying out.
