TENDER LOVING CARE
Ficus Audrey is known as the national tree of India (Banyan Tree). It can grow to up to 100 feet in height. Indoors though it will normally grow to 5-10 feet. Regular pruning will keep its size and shape in check.
Ficus Audrey needs bright filtered light. It can tolerate a few hours of direct sunlight. A south or west-facing window is best.
This plant needs a moist but well-draining soil. A mixture of indoor potting soil, perlite and sand is a good choice for it. Water when the top inch of the soil is dry. Water thoroughly until the water drains out of the bottom but make sure it doesn’t sit in the water. They require a lot of humidity so either put them with a lot of other plants or set the pot on a tray of gravel and water. Again, make sure the pot doesn’t sit in the water.
This plant needs to be dusted regularly. Do not use leaf shine as it can damage fuzzy leaves. Use a damp washcloth to clean the leaves.
Fertilize regularly from early spring to early fall with a balanced liquid fertilizer.
