Ficus Alii makes a wonderful low-maintenance house plant. Alii has long, slender leaves that taper to a point; their other common name is Narrow Leafed Fig.
With attractive, glossy leaves and graceful, arching stems that are almost palm-like in appearance, it is a versatile and attractive indoor green foliage option.
Pet Safe? No
Air Purifying? Yes
Nursery Pot Size: 20cm diameter. The plant is approximately 110cm tall.
Ficus Alii prefers bright, indirect light, but can tolerate partial shade. Direct sunlight may scorch the leaves. It is less likely than other Ficus to drop its leaves when moved.
Water when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. Keep the soil slightly moist at all times, but do not overwater as this will cause leaf drop.
This Ficus has no specific humidity requirements, although for an added boost, consider giving your plant an occasional misting. Avoid cold draughts.
