Aloha! Although I come from the Ficus family, I’m definitely a stand out in the indoor plant crowd. I’m a cute little fig that will guarantee those tropical Hawaiian vibes without the hassle of a long haul flight. I love to be watered consistently and enjoy living in bright, indirect sunlight, and don’t forget to rotate me every so often.  And nothing reminds me more than my native home than the Pierre Terrazzo Pot in Black.

  • Water moderately, allow the top 3cm of soil to dry.

Your new Ficus Alii comes in one size and could grow up to approximately 3m in height.

Care mode

One of the easist of the fig family to grow, albiet a slower grower than it's siblings. Can do well in medium light to bright light. Keep moist during the warmer periods and generally drier during the winter cooler months. Rotate the plant every week as the leaves bend towards the light and this plant looks best with an even display of leaves. Fertilise in warmer months.

Feeding your indoor plants

To get the best out of your indoor plants, you will need to feed them some food. The Good Plant Co Indoor Plant Food will provide all the nutrients they need to grow more leaves and help them stay strong. When the plant is actively growing during the warmer months, it needs a bit more food and water. During the slow growing season (cooler winter months) your plant doesn’t eat or drink as much (no extra winter layer of fat for these babies). Sometimes it’s ok to be a helicopter parent – respond to your plant’s needs. To keep the dust off your beautiful indoor plant leaves use The Good Plant Co Leaf Shine. Moral of the story, if it is growing new leaves then it will need more water and food!

We take great care in growing, packaging, and shipping your new plants so they’re ready to thrive in your home. This includes keeping them safe while they travel from our wholesale nursery to your doorstep.
