Talk about a mini tree! The Ficus benjamina "El Dorado" is probably one of the easier-care, highly-variegated plants available. Part of the ficus family, but with much smaller leaves from your classic Ficus elastica! This variegated version of the Ficus benjamina is also not to be confused with the regular Ficus Benjamin variegate which has more solid variegation. This one has lovely, speckled yellow variegation, with some leaves being solid yellow-cream colour. Avoid placing these plants in drafty areas, and be sure to follow the light requirements in the next tab.

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.

Note: Plants are unique! The plant pictured is meant to give you an idea of the specification and quality of the plant you will receive, but will not be an exact replica.

Light Requirements

Bright

As with other plants in the ficus family, this plant thrives in bright indirect sunlight. A few hours of direct light will be appreciated. Too much, however, may cause burning. Monitor your plants and move accordingly. These plants do not like lower light, so give them as much indirect light as possible! Rotate your plant regularly to maintain an even shape.

Water Requirements

Low

Ensure that the plant dries out before your next water. Ficus plants generally do not like to be kept wet and are sensitive to overwatering. In the winter months, err on the side of caution and do not water thoroughly. Note: Be sure not to let the plant sit in pooled water as that can cause root rot.
