Ficus Benghalensis Audrey
NOTE: CERAMIC POT IS NOT INCLUDED
Easy to care for. Rubber Figs need a bright spot, close to a window if grown as an indoor plant. Insufficient light makes it vulnerable to rotting off and/or leaf drop. If grown outside, Rubber Figs can be adapted to full sun or part shade. Rubber Figs will not tolerate prolonged frost periods.
Like many figs, over-watering can be an issue for some growers. Rubber Figs do best if allowed to dry out somewhat between waterings. If kept permanently wet while in a low-light situation, they will shed leaves and potentially rot out. We recommend watering around once per week. This may need to be reduced in winter, or increased if the plant gets more sun exposure. If you’re unsure when to water, test with your finger or a moisture meter before rewetting.
Regular fertilizing with products such as Troforte and Organic Link will produce lush, colorful growth.
