Ficus Altissima 'Yellow Gem'

Unit price per

Beautiful in its simplicity the Ficus Altissima is a standout variety of the Ficus family. These elegant apple green leaves bring life and vibrance into any well-lit room. 

Rotate this Yellow Gem plant around occasionally as it will lean and grow towards the light. This will ensure it grows tall and straight all around. You can let it grow wild or add extra support stakes and they can grow up to 3-4 feet in height. 

For care, plant in a deep pot with a drainage hole. Watering about every 10-14 days. Being careful not to overwater. We recommend sticking your finger into the soil and if it feels dry past your second knuckle it's ready to water again. 
Curling leaves can mean that the plant is getting too much water. Allow for it to dry out and it will generally bounce back when you correct the watering schedule. If it occurs, trim off any unattractive leaves to promote its energy going back into new growth. 


Light:  Bright indirect light; keep out of direct sunlight.

Water: Water thoroughly; allow the top half of soil to dry out between watering.

Fertilizer: Fertilize monthly during Spring-Summer. Reduce to once every other month during Fall-Winter. 

Pet friendly: No. This plant is toxic to animals.
