Ficus Audrey

The Ficus Audrey is a beautiful plant, native to India. It acclimates well to new spaces and it’s easy to look after. Like most of the Ficus varieties, it prefers humid and warm temperatures, with plenty of sunshine.

The plant features small violin-shaped leaves that grow upright on a tall plant. As the Ficus Audrey matures, it can develop beautiful aerial roots that will become part of the trunk over time, if left to grow.
