aka Ficus Robusta

Light: A handsome fellow with large glossy leaves and another infamous low-maintenance houseplant. Put him in a nice brightly lit spot without any harsh direct sunlight. Avoid putting him somewhere where temperatures drop below 10°c.

Water: Stick a finger in his soil once a week and if it comes out dry then give him a drink. He needs a lot less water in winter than in summer. His leaves can also absorb a lot of moisture, so spraying him with a fine mister every few days will also keep him happy. 

Height: 
In his natural habitat (India, Nepal, Myanmar, China, Malaysia) he can grow to almost 30 meters, however indoors in our climate he reaches a much more manageable height of 3 meters (10ft). With the right TLC, they can live between 25 - 50 years in our homes. 

Food: Feed him during spring and summer with organic plant food. 

PM tip: A terrific air-purifier. Wipe down his leaves with a damp cloth every now and then to remove any dust and help him absorb more sunlight.

Toxicity: His leaves can be toxic if ingested, so keep away from nibbling pets, kids and hangry adults.
