Ficus benghalensis is native to Southern Asia and forms some of the largest canopy trees in their natural environment. But rest assured, when grown indoors they make excellent potted plants (and won’t engulf your spaces!). If you are a fan of easy-going, highly collectable houseplants, this is the one for you.

Claimed to be the next Fiddle Leaf Fig in terms of its popularity, this beguiling foliage plant will make a statement in any room. Audrey enjoys indirect light and moderate humidity; well suited to a home environment but be sure to keep away from heaters and cold draughts. 

Watering is a breeze - just wait until the top layer of soil has dried out before watering thoroughly using water at room temperature, and don’t allow the plant to sit in water. You can keep the velvety leaves free from dust by giving your Ficus an occasional shower.

Ficus benghalensis has a versatile upright growth habit and can either grow up a pole support or be pruned and allowed to branch into a tree-like form. This makes it highly adaptable in your home.

Its ideal location could be as a stunning statement houseplant in your living space, which transitions through different spaces as it ages: on a tabletop when smaller, and later at floor level as it matures. This will be a plant you can enjoy for many years to come. 

Please note; these plants are harmful if eaten and are a skin/eye irritant, so keep out of reach of children and pets.
