Ficus watkinsiana is an unusual Ficus, and we're excited to be able to offer it. They are able to reach an impressive size of 90ft in the wild. They're commonly known as "strangler figs" because in the wild they will germinate high up in trees. They will then send down roots to the ground, take root, grow thicker, and eventually they cover the original host tree. Soon the original host tree will become hollow and die off as the Ficus watkinsiana lives on.
These prefer VERY BRIGHT indirect light but they can handle 2-3 hours of direct sun in the morning or evening. We do not recommend these if your space is a little darker! These let these go fairly dry before giving them a full watering again. They would appreciate a watering once every 7-10 days or 10-12 days, depending on the lighting conditions in your home. When re-potting use a semi-coarse soil.All of our plants are ethically sourced from certified U.S. nurseries. We strongly condemn the poaching of plants or wild collection.
