(aka Ficus benghalensis Audrey)
I originate in India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan.
I have large, thick, oval shaped, leathery leaves, with prominent, pale pink-green veins that stand out against my leaves.
In the wild I can grow to 30 meters tall, but I am much more manageable in a pot. You can prune me to the height you want.
I like bright , indirect light, but I can tolerate some shade. Direct sunshine may burn my leaves.
I am a foliage plant.
Prune me but be aware I have an irritant sap!
I am a long living vigorous plant.
Allow me to dry out completely before saturating me again. Make sure I have good drainage, you can put stones at the bottom of the ceramic pot so the plastic pot has drainage space around it.
I am an air purifying plant and can filter airborne toxins.
