Plant Bio 

The ficus Alii, or Amstel King as it is sometimes called, is a large plant that originally came from Asia, Malaysia, and India. It 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 can be moved around without going into shock. A ficus Alii does grows about 25% slower than a ficus Benjamina. This plant is known to filter airborne toxins and is part of our clean air plant collection. 

 Ficus Amstel King prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate partial shade and some early morning or late afternoon sun. Strong direct sunlight may scorch the leaves. Water when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. Keep the soil moist at all times, but do not over water as this will cause leaf drop. Apply a weak dose of a fertiliser once or twice a month during the growing season. Considered poisonous due to the latex in the sap, therefore keep away from children and animals.
