Ficus benjamina is native to Asia and Australia, in fact it’s the official tree of Bangkok, and can grow to a stunning 30 metres tall in its natural environment. In the UK climate, however, it’s perfectly suited as a stunning indoor feature plant and there are a number of different cultivars with different foliage to choose from.
What’s more, according to a study conducted by NASA, Ficus benjamina is effective at cleansing airborne toxins such as formaldehyde, xylene and toluene which are emitted by a number of household products.
Care & Size Guidance
Ficus benjamina is easy to care for, it only requires bright indirect light, good humidity and consistent temperatures. This plant is sensitive to changes of setting and may drop leaves if moved to a new location, but it should replaced with healthy new growth after some time.
Water when the top few cm of soil is dry to the touch, and make sure the soil never sits in standing water.
Feed in the growing season and be sure not to over water in the darker months. It may be advisable to turn regularly if the sunlight reaches it from one side only, and foliage is likely to burn if kept in too direct sun – for instance when too close to south facing windows.
