Ficus is the most popular mini-tree in the world. If you put it in a large pot or planter it can reach a considerable size. But, generally, its average height is between 60 and 120 centimetres. In spring and summer you can take it outdoors.
As a good rustic plant, the care of the elastic ficus is simple and based on two aspects: light and watering.
The ficus needs a lot of light and even to be located in direct sun. Therefore, we have to look for a luminous environment in which it can feel comfortable and maintain its growth rate. If we do not do this, the plant will lose a good part of its leaves. A good alternative, in case the space does not have all that luminosity that we mentioned, is to turn the pot regularly. In this way, all the leaves will receive the light they need to maintain their size and color.
