Ficus benghalensis, perhaps better known by the common name Ficus Audrey, is a gorgeous specimen tree well suited to those with a modern, minimal aesthetic. Only recently available in the US, Ficus Audrey is a bit easier to care for than its finicky cousin, the Fiddle Leaf Fig. Its velvety, ovate leaves have striking white veining against deep green. Eventually growing quite tall, Ficus Audrey has a handsome white trunk. Ficus benghalensis is native to India, where it grows to truly massive proportions -- in fact, it's amongst the largest trees in the world by canopy coverage, and is the national tree of India.
• Light: Provide bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry
• Considerations: Ficus can be finicky plants, and tend to drop leaves when stressed. Avoid moving your plant once positioned

First order I've made from Pistils, and it likely it won't be my last. The leaves were a bit bent and folded but nothing more than expected. Beautiful plant, would recommend.
I got a multi-stem one. Even though I was expecting around 3 stems like the ones sold at the shops near me, I was very happy with what I got. The plants are healthy. The biggest leave fell of during shipping and a new one didn't last but it has been a week and two new leaves are growing. Can't wait to see how big it'll grow in the future!
