Indoor House Plants That Won't Die On You - #10 Ficus



Ficus

Why you want it: This indoor tree has shiny leaves to add cheer to any indoor space. Its stems can be braided for a tidy topiary effect we love.


How to care for it: This tree likes full sun, or at least bright filtered light. Most varieties (there are about 800!) prefer several days of dry soil in between thorough watering. Room temperatures between 65 to 75 degrees work best. 

Comment:  The one thing I've learned about this plant is that it doesn't like being moved.  Once it gets use to a spot - light, etc. - mine always started losing its leaves if I moved it until it gets use to the new spot.
