  • Likes lots of bright indirect light best 
  • Will tolerate medium light levels

Long, downward-hanging, slender leaves, set off by a long slender trunk, the Ficus Longifolia is the lesser-known cousin of the Ficus Benjamina.

This stately plant adds a calming presence to any room, with its slender leathery leaves that grace the crown of and woven trunk.

A great indoor plant as it adapts easily to indoor life, and although it likes bright, indirect light best, it can tolerate medium light as well.

Please note: Ficus are known to be toxic when ingested.

Follow these instructions to keep your Ficus Longifolia healthy and happy.

  • Water: Water thoroughly approximately every week in summer (bright, indirect light) and every two weeks in winter. Wait for the top 2-5cm of soil to dry out before watering again. Do not overwater and do not let the plant sit in a puddle of excess water.
  • Light: Plenty of bright, indirect light is best, but the plant will tolerate medium light levels as well. 
  • Humidity: Average humidity is fine for this plant, but will appreciate regular misting to increase humidity. 
  • Fertilize: Feed your plant every 2 weeks with a balanced liquid fertilizer during the warmer months. You do not need to feed during winter.
