Ficus Yellow Gem (Altissima) 6"

Botanical name: Ficus Altissima Golden Gem

Common name: Ficus Yellow Gem Elastica, Golden Rubber Plant

 

OWNER STATUS

It’s a plant that looks more difficult than it is. Low maintenance with high rewards. (Novice)

 

DESCRIPTION

Foliage: Cheerfully bright yellow-green leaves with pastel yellow veins that shout “good morning sunshine” in a Robin Williams voice. 

Size: These can start off small (6-8 inches) but as they mature they can reach a height of 3 to 4 feet in ideal conditions. 

 

CARE

Light: Indirect, dapple light suits these gems. Brighter light in the summer, and moderate in the winter months. Keep out of direct light, especially during the summer months. 

Water: This Ficus won’t be upset with an occasional misting as it enjoys a humid climate. Top half of the soil should dry out in between waterings. Make sure you give it adequate water during waterings (you should see water flow through the drainage holes).

Soil: A lightweight loamy soil which will provide good drainage. 

 

TOXICITY

Humans: Can cause irritation, itching, and rash.  

Pets: Toxic.
