Scientific name: Ficus Umbellata
Synonyms: Umbrella Fig, Umbrella Tree Fig

  • Large Spade-shaped leaves
  • Perfect for a Lush Jungle Look
  • An alternative to the Fiddle leaf fig
  • Loves bright, filtered light
  • Plant Level: Intermediate

We don't blame you for being rapt by the beauty of the Umbrella Fig. We are too! With its large, spade-shaped leaves and minimalist charm, it effortlessly cultivates a lush and inviting ambience in any setting. Hence, its worldwide popularity comes as no surprise.

Similar to its cousin, the Fiddle Leaf Fig, the Ficus Umbellata thrives in bright, filtered light with gentle, direct sunlight, preferably during mornings or late afternoons. Consistent watering is key; ensure the soil remains moist but not overly saturated to prevent root rot. Regular pruning promotes bushier growth, ensuring a year-round spectacle. For the adventurous, try shaping it with bonsai wire for a whimsical touch.

With its undeniable visual appeal, consider pairing your Umbrella Tree Fig with a contemporary planter for a sleek, clean look, or opt for a Palm leaf basket for a softer, organic feel. Whichever style you choose, this plant is guaranteed to make a statement.

Please note: Ficus is considered toxic if consumed. Best kept out of reach of hungry pets and children.

Follow these instructions to keep your Umbrella Fig healthy and happy:

Water: Keep the soil evenly moist, nominally, water once every 7–10 days. Drooping yellow leaves with black patches are a sign of overwatering. Prefers to be dry in the winter.
Light: Bright indirect light year-round, some dappled or softer direct sunlight is fine.
Humidity: Average room humidity
Fertilize: Balanced diluted fertiliser every 2 weeks from spring through summer.
