A close relative of the fiddle leaf fig, ficus Audrey is easier to grow and care for indoors and has a similar growth habit and appearance. However, it can be distinguished from the fiddle leaf by its smaller, slightly fuzzy oblong leaves and smooth, light-colored trunk.
Ficus Audrey are great air purifying plants.
Light: Bright, indirect light. South or west-facing windows are ideal.
Water: Allow the top 2 to 3 inches of soil to dry between waterings and then water thoroughly. Ficus Audrey does best in consistently moist soil and should never be allowed to dry out completely.
Soil: Ficus Audrey appreciates regular fertilizing during its active growing period. Fertilize once a month from the early spring to early fall with a balanced liquid fertilizer.
Pruning: Since ficus Audrey can grow up to 10 feet tall indoors, pruning may be a necessary part of caring for this indoor tree. Not only will pruning help to control the size of your plant, but it encourages the tree to branch more vigorously which will make it more aesthetically pleasing and structurally sound.
Pet Toxicity: Unfortunately, these plants may be toxic to pets.
