Easy-Growing Ficus with Olive-Toned Foliage
Why Ficus Alii Braid Plants?
Delivering effortlessly strong growth with the added perk of unique olive-toned foliage, the Ficus Alii Braid Plant is the most popular cultivar of Ficus maclellandii for its virtually carefree nature and eye-catching good looks.
And not only does the Alii's foliage grow in a unique hue...but its large leaves are slender, creating an elegant drooping effect.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Preferring full sun to partial shade, your Ficus Alii should be placed in front of a bright window but kept away from the harsh afternoon sun.
To plant your Ficus, select a container that's twice the width of the shipped container and one that has drainage holes. Use organic soil mix, place your plant and water to settle its roots.
2. Watering: To know when to water your Ficus, use your finger to check the soil's moisture level. Water your plant when there's a full inch of dryness from the top of the soil.
3. Pruning: Simply remove any dead or damaged foliage to keep your Ficus Alii growing healthy. You may trim to shape, but excessive pruning is unnecessary.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
