Ficus Benjamina Starlight

$12

Ficus benjamina, commonly known as weeping fig, benjamin fig or ficus tree, and often sold in stores as just ficus, is a species of flowering plant in the family Moraceae, native to Asia and Australia. It is the official tree of Bangkok. Starlight is a variation that has almost white leaves splashed with dark green. It likes bright light, but tolerates less direct sun than many other variegated varieties.

They do not need to see the sun directly. But filtered sunlight through glass is fine.
The minimum light requirement for them is 0 - 3 feet away from the nearest light source. A good bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that right next to a window.
They need to be watered when the first 1 - 2 inches of soil is dry. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It may vary depends on your environment and light condition, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you do the watering.
They can live in any average home humidity condition.
The Ficus is easy to propagate during summer with a few inches of good branch cuttings (from the tip), placed into soil.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
