This elegant houseplant is surprisingly low maintenance, making it the perfect showstopper for any new plant parent. A relatively fast growing plant, you'll be rewarded for all your time spent caring for this long-leafed tree!
Originating from South-East Asia, the Long Leafed Fig is used to warm environments, so makes the perfect houseguest.
The Ficus Alii is a lot more robust than other members of the Ficus family, so won't be quite as sensitive to changes in its environment. However, it can take a little while to get its watering levels correct - so don't be alarmed by some leaf drop initially.
