Ficus Yellow Gem



G'day mate! I'm as fair dinkum as a kangaroo in a boxing match—meet your true blue indoor plant proudly rocking the Aussie colors of green and gold! I'm like a variegated Ficus, so I fancy a bit of that bright, indirect light and soil as damp as a soggy shrimp on the barbie. But hey, give me some space to air out between drinks—that's waterings for us plants, mate! Let's have a ripper of a time together, mate!

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.
