Ficus is an evergreen plant and has beautiful lush foliage.
There are more than a hundred varieties of Ficus. Common plants in the Ficus family are Ficus Religiosa (Peepal), Ficus Elastica (Rubber plant), and Ficus Microcarpa (Green island Ficus).
It is an extremely hardy plant and is ideal for making bonsais as it grows aerial roots very easily and the stem attains woody texture very quickly.
It is an outdoor and low-maintenance plant.
It can easily be multiplied using branch/stem cuttings or air layering.
Water: Water the plants only when the soil is dry.
Soil: Ficus plants can grow in all soil types as they have a strong root system but for quicker growth, use well-draining and porous soil which is rich in nutrients.
Sunlight: Ficus is a sun-loving plant.
Do not keep it indoors for too long as it starts to shed leaves.
Ficus needs regular pruning to keep the plant in shape.
