10" Ficus Yellow Gem Standard
Light: Bright, indirect light. Ideally placed in an eastern-facing window.
Water: When the top 2-3" of soil is dry, water until liquid flows through the drainage hole and empty any water that has accumulated in the saucer to avoid root rot. Allowing the soil to dry more than a few inches will lead to leaf loss. Alternatively, too much moisture in the soil can lead to root rot and also cause leaves to drop.
Humidity & Environment: Ficus prefers a humid environment that sits at a temperature between 60°-80° F. A pebble tray or mist frequently is greatly appreciated by this plant.
Food: Feed once a month during the spring and summer with a general all-purpose liquid fertilizer for indoor plants.
Pruning: Be careful of the milky latex substance that may leak out where cuts have occurred - this is a mildly toxic irritant.
Growth: 5-10' tall
