    Maintenance Notes: 
    • For optimal performance, keep at 60-85°F (15-29°C).
    • Protect furniture when watering.
    • Feed once per month at half strength when plant is actively growing.
    • If you would like a bushier plant, prune your plant to promote branching.  The plant exudes a white, milky sap when pruned or broken, so if your skin comes in contact with it, wash your hands immediately.
    • These are NOT low light plants and need to be right in front of a window for best results.  Some direct sun is beneficial (east or west window) and they can even grow in your sunniest window.  
    • Allow the top 2-3 inches of soil to dry out before watering again.  
    • Use a well-draining potting mix.  Adding perlite and orchid bark will improve drainage.
    • Never allow to sit in standing water. 
    • As with any Ficus, avoid any drafty areas and avoid placing near cooling and heating vents or the plant may drop its leaves.  
    • The broad leaves will get very dusty, so use a duster to clean the leaves, wipe with a damp sponge, or rinse the leaves off.
