*Our last remaining plants have some cosmetic damage in the form of nicks or tears to leaves which will not affect the health of the plant going forward.
The Ficus Umbellata will thrive in a location which receives medium to bright, indirect or filtered light. Direct sun can burn this plants leaves and should be avoided. Low lighting should also be avoided, as it is not sufficient for the Umbellata.
Water and Soil
The Ficus Umbellata does best with soil which is lightly moist. Allow the top inch or so of soil to dry out between waterings, and take extra care to ensure the soil never becomes wet, soggy or waterlogged, as this can quickly damage the plant. It is always best to err on the side of underwatering, as it is much easier to recover from than a lack of water. Ficus Umbellata does best with a well draining yet absorbent soil. Amending a standard potting mix with perlite, bark, or charcoal will add drainage, while the addition of peat or coco coir will help with moisture absorbency.
Temperature and Humidity
This plant prefers indoor growing temperatures of 65 to 75 degrees F. While the Umbellata does just fine in low to average humidity, this plant will experience faster growth and better overall health in medium to high humidity humidity. Providing your Ficus with extra humidity through a humidifier, pebble tray or regular misting is beneficial.
