Ficus benjamina 'Golden King' | Weeping Fig | 17cm Pot | By Plant TheoryFicus trees are a very popular variety as no matter what their size, they will always maintain their tree shape and bushy habit. Their abundant foliage makes for a lovely addition to living spaces and with good care, they can be grown into large indoor trees. This Golden King variety has beautiful variegated green leaves with a yellow edge up the height of the plant. Care can be a little trial and error when setting up but getting a few things right from the start will position you for growing success. You'll soon discover these plants can be a tad dramatic as they tend to shed leaves if there's a problem; this is a natural reaction to all sorts of issues such as wrong lighting, under or overwatering, a draft or a temperature issue. All this means is that you'll get a clear warning from your plant if something is up and you'll have plenty of space to adjust accordingly for a happy and healthy plant. In exchange for this, your Ficus will clean the air in your home for you; they've been rated as one of the best plants for purifying the air.
Ficus trees make excellent standalone plants for hallways, living areas or office spaces
