This is an elegant, easy to grow fig that can take the form of a small tree or a multi-stemmed, bushy plant. Slender, arching branches carry the shiny, dark and light green variegated leaves. In order for its variegation to stay prominent, the plant needs bright light. Placing it right in front of an east-facing or west-facing window is ideal. A southern exposure is also great. The plain old Ficus benjamina is very prone to dropping leaves when the plant is moved to a new location, but Anastasia has been developed to minimize this defect!Adaptable As HouseplantFoliage InterestHarmful To:Pets

Not for human or animal consumption.Maintenance Notes:
- For optimal performance, keep your Cling-On Fig at 60-85°F (15-29°C).
- Be sure to position your Cling-On Fig away from cold drafts and forced air.
- Cling-On Figs thrive in bright indirect light.
- Cling-On Figs prefer to dry out some in between waterings. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before giving your Fig a good soaking.
- Feed your Cling-On once per month at half strength when it is actively growing. Reduce frequency of fertilization in the winter months. If no new leaves are growing, it does not need to be fertilized.
- Protect furniture when watering & fertilizing.
- If your Cling-On Fig is a young plant, it will grow fairly quickly and may need to be repotted every 1-2 years. When repotting your Fig, use all purpose potting mix with added orchid bark and perlite to ensure good drainage and plenty of nutrients.
