For plant parents who want a stunning Ficus without the heartache of the Ficus lyrata (Fiddle Leaf Fig), the Ficus altissima is a beautiful option! Its to-toned green leaves; darker in the centre with brighter green edges gives a subtle variegation that one can appreciate the more you look at it. Its large leaves also help to give your space a calm, tropical feel.
These plants are fairly easy to maintain, once you follow the water and light requirements below. Also, avoid placing these plants in drafty areas.
These are toxic to pets, so be careful with your furry friends. The sap can also be toxic to humans if in contact with mucous membranes. When pruning the plant, make sure that you wash your hands after and do not touch your eyes and mouth.
