Key attributes

Ficus benjamina 'Starlight'' is a gorgeous variety of the weeping fig. It has cascading branches of shiny green and white, variegated foliage. It's an easy-to-grow, indoor plant with an elegant tropical appearance.

  • Bright with some direct sunlight.
  • Water sparingly, soil to be almost dry.
  • Mostly safe, could cause digestive upset if ingested.

Your new Ficus Benjamina Starlight comes in one size and if kept inside can grow up to approximately 3m in height.

Large: 20cm - 40cm in height. Planted in a 200mm black nursery pot.

Care mode

Generally easy but to care for but loves the extra attention. Secret to success is not to over-water the plant. Enjoying a bright room with some direct sunlight remember to keep the leaves dust free by wiping them regularly with our Leaf Shine. Trim the brown leaves to encourage new growth. Rotate the plant every week as the leaves bend toward the light and this plant looks best with an even dispaly 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.
