Plant care

  • Light: Ficus benghalensis 'Audrey', like most Ficus, requires bright indirect light to be its happiest.
  • Water: Allow your Ficus benghalensis 'Audrey' to dry out at least halfway down in-between waterings.
  • This plant likes sun, but keep out of direct sunlight. Best placed in an area near a window.
