5" Ficus Benghalensis aka Audrey
Loves bright light but not direct sunlight. Water when the soil becomes dry to the touch, better to underwater than overwater. Toxic to pets.
Ficus Benghalensis aka Audrey comes in a 5" plastic growers pot, plant height ranges 12" - 14" from the base of the pot.
Native to the tropics, including Asia, America and Africa, the Ficus belongs to the fig genus with hundreds of Ficus species out there. A mainstay in many offices and homes because they look like a typical tree with a trunk and canopy, the Ficus is also commonly called the Ficus Tree, Weeping Fig and Fig Tree – yes, the latter being the one that produces the fruit. Regardless of their size, they’ll always maintain their ‘tree-like’ appearance with dark and/or variegated foliage. Ficuses add a splash of colour and lushness to any home, but you’ll want to be mindful when you’re shopping for Ficuses since they have a reputation for being finnicky house plants. They shed leaves at the very first sign of stress, which can be very off-putting for someone who doesn’t like to break out their broom and dustpan too often.
