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.
To thrive, Ficus Audrey needs bright, indirect light. Allow the top 1-2" of soil to dry between waterings. Take care not to overwater, as this plant is sensitive to over-watering.
Ships in a 6" plastic nursery pot. Overall height of plants is about 10-12"; choose between a plant with a single stem, and a plant with 2-3 stems. Includes detailed care instructions. Fiberstone Cylinder sold separately.

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.
