Ficus trees are very easy to care for once they are settled into their new environment. After they adjust to their new home, they will thrive in a spot with bright indirect light and a consistent watering schedule. Happy in virtually any situation that avoids direct blazing sunshine, your Ficus is a beautiful, low-maintenance indoor plant.
Your Ficus prefers bright indirect light. Direct sun may burn the leaves and cause them to drop.
Water your Ficus Audrey when the top 50-75% of the soil is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.
Your Ficus tree will do well in average humidity environments but will appreciate regular misting.
Your Ficus Audrey enjoys average room temperatures of 15-25 degrees. Avoid temperatures below 10 degrees, sudden temperature drops, or cold drafts.
For best results, feed your Ficus once a month from spring through summer with a general houseplant fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength.
Ficus leaves are mildly toxic to humans and pets. Typically, ingestion will cause mouth and stomach irritation and possible vomiting.
Ficus plants are sensitive to being moved. If you have to move your plant around, do so gradually. Any sudden changes can cause leaves to drop. When pruning your plant, be careful of the milky latex substance that may leak out where cuts have occurred—this is a mildly toxic irritant. If you get the sap on your hands or skin, wash with warm water and soap immediately.
