The Ficus Yellow Gem is one highly attractive Tree, with beautifully veined yellow and green leaves and when grown indoors makes for an excellent potted plant (and won’t engulf your spaces!). If you are a fan of easy-going, highly collectable houseplants, this is the one for you.

This beguiling foliage plant will make a statement in any room. The Loft Fig houseplant appreciates indirect light and moderate humidity to keep it looking its best; 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 glossy leaves free from dust by giving your Ficus an occasional shower.

The Lofty Fig has a versatile upright growth habit and can either grow up 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.

Follow these instructions to keep your Lofty Fig healthy and happy.

Water: Water regularly during the growing season, but leave the soil to dry out slightly between watering. Water less often in winter.
Light: Likes bright, indirect light best. Can handle a little morning full sun.
Humidity: Average household humidity. Does appreciate being misted now and then.
Fertilize: Feed the Ficus Audrey about once a month with a diluted balanced feed from Spring through Summer.
