If you are looking for a true statement plant and are a lover of variegated leaves, then the Ficus Starlight is a true eye-catcher with its dainty almost wistful cream and dusky green mottled foliage and silver-grey branches.

Ficus are ever-popular houseplants and if cared for correctly it will grow into a large tree in time. Your Starlight is a lover of humidity and very bright filtered light as this will maintain its luscious variegated foliage but if placed in direct sunlight will scorch. It also really dislikes being moved around or sudden temperature and light changes. If you do happen to move your Ficus Starlight it may drop its leaves but be patient with time and the correct care they will regrow.

Pair this beauty with a simple planter that will draw attention to the Starlights magnificent foliage and place it in a bright filtered light position, either on a tabletop to create extra height or in a position where it will not be caught by a draft. Wherever you choose to place your Ficus Starlight, be it in your office or at home, know it will be working hard for by not only looking attractive but by cleaning your air as they are brilliant air purifiers removing high levels of household toxins and leaving your space jungle fresh.

They love attention and are ideal for the more attentive houseplant lover as they cannot handle long periods of dryness or neglect.  

Please note: Ficus Benjamina is toxic to pets and humans.
