Interiorscape - Interiorscape Plants IV, Ficus

Ficus species are mainstays in interiorscapes. Depending on the species the light requirments vary from low to medium. All ficus species have low water requirements. Some are very sensitive to movement and must be handled gently when placing. They also need to be acclimatized before placing in the interior site. The following are some species and handling requirements.
