4-5 ft Ficus Umbellata in Vintage Shanxi Ceramic Pot "Umbrella Tree Fig"

Ficus umbellata, also known as the Umbrella Tree Fig, is a unique and attractive plant native to Africa. Here's how to care for it:

Light: Place your Ficus umbellata in bright, indirect sunlight. It can tolerate some direct sun, but avoid intense, prolonged exposure that might scorch its leaves.

Temperature: Keep the plant in a warm environment, ideally between 65°F to 80°F. Avoid sudden temperature fluctuations and drafts.

Watering: Allow the top inch (2.5 cm) of the soil to dry out before watering. Water thoroughly and ensure proper drainage to prevent root rot. Adjust watering frequency based on the plant's specific conditions and the season.

Humidity: Ficus umbellata prefers higher humidity levels. Regular misting or placing the plant on a humidity tray with water and pebbles can help increase humidity around the plant.

Soil: Use a well-draining, peat-based potting mix that retains moisture without becoming waterlogged. A mix designed for tropical plants is suitable.

Fertilizing: Feed your Ficus umbellata with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or stop fertilizing during the dormant months.

Pruning: Prune your plant to maintain its shape, remove dead or yellowing leaves, and encourage bushier growth. Ficus umbellata can grow tall and leggy if not pruned.

Pest and Disease: Watch for common pests like spider mites, mealybugs, and aphids. Inspect your plant regularly and treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

Air Purification: Ficus umbellata is known for its air-purifying qualities, helping to improve indoor air quality.

Tips: Remember that each plant's conditions may vary, so closely monitor your Ficus Umbellata and adjust care as needed to ensure its well-being.
