Plant Care

Watering

Water once a week or when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. Keep the soil lightly moist at all times, but do not overwater as this will cause brown spots and leaf drop. Curly or dry leaves suggest, the plant is dry and needs watering. Water in the early morning or late evening when temperatures are cooler. Always check your soil before watering.

Light

Bright indoor light or indirect sun. 6 hours to 8 hours

Temperature

Maintain temperatures between 18°C - 24°C. Avoid draughts as these can create undesirable temperature fluctuations. Consider giving your plant an occasional misting twice every week to maintain the optimum humidity level.

Fertilizer

Apply liquid fertilizer once in 15 days when the plant is actively growing. For best results use Folikraft ready to use Indoor Plant Food.

Plant Bio

The Ficus Alii tree, or Amstel King as it is sometimes called, is a large plant that originally came from Asia, Malaysia, and India. The Ficus Alii was first grown commercially in Hawaii where it got the Hawaiian name “alii” which means “king.” Although a Ficus Alii is closely related to the Ficus benjamina, the Alii variety is much more tolerant and forgiving; it rarely sheds leaves, tolerates lower light, and allows you to move it around without going into shock.

Ficus Alii plants do well in bright indirect light; however, they can survive in medium light. The lower the light level, the longer a Ficus Alii takes to produce new leaves. Rotate weekly to maintain the plant's beautiful shape. Water a Ficus Alii when the top 1 inch of the soil has dried out. Water well so that excess water drains out the drip holes in the bottom of the pot. Immediately empty excess water and do not allow a Ficus Alii to sit in water. New growth turns black and green leaves fall off from over-watering. Leaves become brown and crunchy, drop off, and may turn yellow when the plant needs water. Feed monthly with a well-balanced liquid fertilizer when the plant is actively growing. Use a good, all purpose, well- aerated potting soil. Ficus Alii plants are Poisonous Houseplants with a level #2 toxicity. The sap contains latex that can cause skin irritations. Always wear gloves when pruning.
