    Features

    Ficus microcarpa 'Moclame' is a super-easy care plant and is likely one of the easiest Ficus that you can grow indoors. If you're looking for a lower maintenance Ficus, this is it! These can be trimmed into bonsai, or you can let them grow wild and allow them to grow tall. These plants are tall trees in nature, so the ceiling is the limit in your home if you can provide Moclame with good conditions!

    • 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.
    • Ficus in general are NOT low light plants.  Windows with no direct sun will work, but east or west windows with some direct sun are better choices.  
    • Allow the top 1-2 inches of the potting soil to dry out before watering again.  Avoid letting it dry out completely. 
    • Use a well-drained potting mix.  Adding perlite and orchid bark will improve drainage.
    • Avoid draft areas (cold or hot) such as from heating/cooling vents and opening and closing doors, particularly during cold weather.
