An indoor tree that offers up dense foliage and cleaner air

Ficus 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.

Packaging

Plant Theory has sustainability at its heart. That means that every house plant will be delivered in eco-friendly packaging that doesn't compromise on protection.

The intuitive box design is totally plastic free and optimised to keep your plants safe in transit, without unnecessary harm to the environment. The cardboard packaging is fully recyclable to deliver you a more eco-conscious product.

We believe that anyone, regardless of ability can successfully grow their own plants at home, and do so in an eco-friendly and sustainable way.

Everyone should have the chance to experience the benefits that plants bring to our lives, and we have put a lot of effort into making sure that all of our products are easy to grow, even for beginners.

Sustainability is at the heart of our ethos and we have done everything we can to ensure that all of our products are as sustainable as possible, be it our plastic free, fully recyclable packaging, GM free seeds or ethically sourced compost.

Monsteras are happiest in bright light but not direct sun as this will cause their leaves to yellow. A little way back from a window in a bright room is ideal.

Water once a week, adding in a liquid plant feed once a month through summer for an added boost to growth. Allow the water to run right through the soil and out of the drainage holes of the nursery pot, leaving the water 10 minutes or so to sink through before returning to the display pot. This can be done once a week in summer but should be reduced in winter.

Mist the leaves When temperatures in the house rise due to summer or winter heating.
