This beautiful Ficus Altissima tree makes a striking impression indoors. Its broad, smooth, shiny leaves are two tones of green, with pointy tips. In the wild, this tree can grow over 40 feet tall, but in your home, it should top out around 6 to 8 feet. Other common names include 'Lofty Fig'. Ficus Altissima is the cool new plant on the scene.  It displays large, leathery, electric, green-centered leaves edged in bright lime green.

Care Information

  • Prefers higher humidity to prevent leaf edges from browning.
  • Feed once per month at half strength when plant is actively growing.
  • Protect furniture when watering.
  • Add some perlite and/or orchid bark to an all-purpose potting mix for a great growing medium.
  • Water when the top 2-3 inches of soil are dry.
  • Placement right in front of a window that receives at least a few hours of sun indoors is ideal.
