Description

The Ficus altissima ‘Yellow Gem’ is a relatively new breed of the ficus family.

'Yellow Gem' is a beautifully bright variety with glossy oval leaves that are variegated with vivid green and vibrant yellow.. A spectacular indoor pot plant or outdoor canopy tree. Cutting the tops off will cause side branching which easily enables a staggered bushy look when grown as an indoor specimen.

Environment

Ficus plant needs a moderate amount of light but not in full sun with moderate watering. . For indoor plants, care should be taken not to over water, otherwise leaf drop and possibly root rot will occur. Allow the soil to dry between watering. Light levels, watering and humidity should be kept as constant as possible to avoid leaf drop.

Feed all Ficus houseplants when they are actively growing with a well balanced plant food diluted to 1/2 the recommended strength. Never feed a Ficus Tree in the winter.

Avoid placing a Ficus Tree near an air conditioner, heater, or any cold drafts from windows and doors

Landscape Uses

It is an excellent plant for garden rockery settings, desert type landscapes, patios and botanical gardens

This is a plant that removes toxins from the environment.

An area with bright indirect sunlight is the best place to keep a Ficus plant. They do not like constant changes in temperature hence do not like to be moved around too much.

Use a well draining soil to pot the ficus. You can alternatively also use a combination of coco peat, perlite and compost. Over watering is as detrimental as under watering for ficus. Make sure you pour just enough water into the pot to seep through the drainage holes. Best way to measure it are the leaves. If the leaves fold easily, you make have over watered it. If the leaves are crinkly you may have under watered it.
