African Fig Tree

£32.00

‘Ficus Cyathistipula’

The African Fig Tree is a pretty majestic plant. Standing tall and not over taking the whole house, this guy has respect. He will grow up not out and is a great air purifyer. He’s easy to look after too so serves well as an office plant, or in a house where the air is perhaps a bit dryer or shadier. I love him and you will too.

He comes in a 21 cm nursery pot and is pretty tall at over 100cm high!

Availability: 2 in stock

Light :  Lots of bright indirect light. These lovelies could tolerate some direct morning sun too. He’s also shade tolerant too. 

Water:  when the top of the soil starts to dry out these guys need a drink.They like their soil moist, but not wet. They’ll be thirstier in summer, so check the soil often.

Humidity: Your African Fig Tree will be ok in your normal household humidity, but if it’s looking dusty or a bit crispy then give it a little mist.

Temperature: Your warm household temperature will be fine for this guy. Don’t sit him by a draught and make sure he doesn’t get too cold. 

Food:  During the growing season (spring/summer) you can fertilise with weak fertiliser once or twice a month. 

Toxicity: toxic if ingested – best kept out of reach of nibblers

Dimensions 21 cm

Your African Fig Tree may need an adjustment period when moving into your home, it can be normal for a change to shock them and they might drop leaves – the same can be said if you move it to another room. 

The lower leaves can also drop when the plant is growing new leaves. This isn’t anything to worry about. 

Brown edges/dry leaves can be a humidity issue. Make sure he’s getting enough moisture. 

Soft leaves can be due to overwatering. Check the soil and adjust your watering.
