FICUS Triangularis

This member of the ficus family is most commonly found as a standard tree or a bush type. It has large dark green, shiny rounded triangle-shaped leaves on woody branches. They make an excellent specimen plant in the right environment.

LIGHT: One of the most important needs for the Ficus is bright light. Not enough light will cause leaf loss. An east, west, or southern window with a sheer curtain is ideal. Some leaf loss is normal as your plant acclimates to it's surroundings. Once placed, refrain from moving this plant unless you see that it needs more light.

TEMPERATURE: Provide average household warmth with a minimum of 55° in the winter. Mist occasionally to lelvate humidity in dry environments.

WATER: Allow soil to dry to the touch before thorough watering. Do not allow plant to stand in water. With a larger plant you must make sure you give it enough water to reach the bottom of the pot. If you do not you will loose leaves. A suggestion is to give it enough water until you see it run out the bottom of the pot.

These specialty plants are available occasionally in 10" pots.
