A tree native to the Indian Subcontinent, the Ficus Bengalensis is considered among the largest trees in the world by canopy coverage! The tree is considered sacred in India with temples often built nearby and provides useful shade in hot climates. Rotating your ficus every few days will help it to grow evenly and not lean towards the light. Its leaves will also appreciate a dusting with a damp cloth every week or two, to make it shinier and to allow more sunlight to hit the leaves for photosynthesis.
Be playful with proportions and add depth & visual interest to your favourite room by mixing leafy textures, shapes, & patterns.
