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.
