Ficus Audrey (Ficus benghalensis)

Native to India and with leaves like no other, the Ficus Audrey is wonderful alternate to the other classic ficus plants we are used to seeing indoors. From its thick trunk and branch structure stem these wonderfully vivid green, veined leaves which are velvety to the touch. Growing to create a true tree-like specimen and loving a warm, well lit spot she is sure to brighten up any room.

LIGHT
Prefers bright, indirect sunlight. Audrey will not cope in a low-light.

WATER
Only water once the topsoil has dried (use your finger to check) and water sparingly - one cup every two weeks is enough, even in the warmer months. If you live in a warm house assess whether your plant requires watering more regularly or a good drench. Reduce watering in the cooler months and allow the plant to dry out longer between drinks. Try reducing watering to one cup, once a month.

NUTRIENTS
Feed with slow-release fertiliser once every six months (refer to packaging for dosage).In the warmer months, feed monthly with a liquid fertiliser.

IDEAL TEMPERATURE
Warm.
