6" Ficus triangularis variegated
Bright indirect light
Allow soil to dry almost completely
Ficus triangularis variegata or variegated are truly stunning plants! The leaves have a unique green and white variegation pattern to them.
Ficus triangularis do well as an indoor plant and as a container plant on a patio or porch.
Ficus care is relatively simple. Most Ficus plants prefer bright indirect light. Make sure your plant is in a well draining soil rich in organic matter and allow it to dry out almost completely between watering. Take care not to place your Ficus near a cold window or near a heat or air vent.
Ficus, commonly referred to as a "Fig" or "Rubber tree", is a large genus of plants that number over 800 different species. They are found on almost every continent and range from tropical to semi-temperate climate zones.
Ficus generally grow as shrubs and trees but some also grow as vines and epiphytes.
The more traditional Ficus that are commonly cultivated as house plants are the Elastica species, like Tineke and Ruby.
Most Ficus prefer to dry out between watering. They prefer bright indirect light and some species thrive in direct sun.
The focus was shipped perfectly, but due to shipping shock, it dropped 90% of its leaves. I expected this, as we know the ficus is a moody species. The variegation on the plant is beautiful and I expect it to revive. I am mentioning this because I don’t want people to be alarmed if you have this plant shipped to you. It will bounce back. I’m very happy with my purchase and look forward to my next one.
My ficus came in excellent condition and perfect size. Exactly what I was hoping for.
