Product Description

Ficus Benjamina variegated weeping fig is a tree looking plant that grows to around 1 metre tall (when in a pot). They have great uses including offices and homes, they can also be made into a bonsai because of their miniature tree look.

If your Ficus gets too big or the soil dries out more quickly than normal pot it up into a pot that is slightly larger. When you pot them up add in some slow release fertiliser to keep them growing and looking lush.

Ficus benjamina 'Starlight' require low to moderate amounts of water and a liquid feed every couple of months.

The Ficus suits a table setting when they are small. It is recommended to put your plants all together in the shower or garden and hose them off every now and again.

  • Attractive foliage
  • Hardy indoor plant
  • Suitable for offices and homes
