10in Ficus Elastica Melany Standard
Ficus elastica Melany tree in a 10in nursery pot.
Light: Bright filtered light
Very bright filtered or indirect light. Does not tolerate medium or low light conditions well. Can be acclimated to tolerate direct sun.
Likes to dry out 50% between waterings. Water roughly every 10-14 days. Leaf dropping is a sign of too much water and not enough light.
Soil: Well-draining soil
A mix of potting soil and perlite and orchid bark.
Toxicity Level: Toxic to animals.
Additional Information: Ficus plants do not tolerate change well, on occasion they can experience periods of leaf loss when adapting to change or when they experience a change in watering habits. Leaves can grow back overtime, but trees that struggle in this way should be placed in the brightest filtered light possible indoors.
Plant Health: At Paraíso we go above and beyond to ensure our plants are healthy and ready to thrive indoors. We hand-spray every surface of each plant with organic cold-pressed Neem Oil. Neem is an organic horticultural oil that is a highly effective pest control and preventative. It's safe for humans and bees, and helps to ensure your plant's long-term health.
We strive for our plants to be the healthiest and most lush around because we care deeply about plant health.
