What's a Ficus?

Botanical Classification:


Ficus trees are very easy to care for once they are settled into their new environment. After they adjust to their new home, they will thrive in a spot with bright indirect light and a consistent watering schedule. Happy in virtually any situation that avoids direct blazing sunshine, your Ficus is a beautiful, low-maintenance indoor plant.

Fun Fact

Your Ficus may enter a period of dormancy where growth will slow in the cold fall and winter months, perking back up in the spring and summer.
