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. 

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.
