HOUSEPLANT FOR SALE

© 2018 by THE GINGER JUNGLE HOUSE PLANT

Ficus benghalensis Audrey...Beautiful big grossly leaves with very prominent creamy veins. Very easy so perfect for any home or office. These are a good size and in the right conditions will grow nice a tall!

 

Care: The Ficus benghalensis prefers bright indirect light, so placed just near a window will be perfect and don't forget to watch out for hot direct sunlight. Water once the soil starts to dry out. When I water my plants I always check the soil first by poking my finger about 3cm down into the soil if the soil feels wet I would hold off. 

 

Other information:

Size: Pot Diameter 14cm - Total height is approximately 25-35cm 

Toxicity: Considered poisonous. Keep away from children and animals.

Difficulty: Easy peasy 

Air-purifying: Yes, Ficus Audry is an excellent plant for air-purifying, her big leaves make her perfect.

Feeding: General, the majority of houseplants should be fed every 2nd watering during the growing season (Spring and Summer), for me, it's about which every 14 days. In autumn and winter, I feed less, as indoor plants will require fewer nutrients.

  • Humidity 

    Humidity is the key if you want awesome looking houseplants most of the plants I have for sale are all tropical they grow along the tropical rainforest floor climbing and creeping toward the light and it rains a lot! Obvistley we can't create the same environment like a tropical rainforest, even thou I try my best but there are lots you can do to help your plant to be happy and flourish. I would definitely recommend a  pebble tray with clay pebbles these hold in the moisture and then breaths it back out. I keep the pebble moist all year around this stops the edges of your houseplants from going dry and brown. Misting is also very important I mist my houseplants once or twice a day I use filtered tap water for all my plants.

     

    Light

    I try mimicking how they may grow under a tropical canopy. But this is not easy in most houses in the UK. Luckily a lot of houseplants like philodendron do quite well in the shade that's why they make such amazing houseplants.  As a rule, I make sure they can see the sky or a window if you lack light you could also buy some growing lights I have a few of these around the house and they seem to really help the darker winters days. 

    Houseplant soil

    Soil needs to be very quick draining, light with a nice organic mix for my private collections I use a mixture of perlite, orchid bark, fine pine bark, coco husk and an organic peat-free soil I also tend to add some charcoal. I try to avoid peat as I just find it attracts those nasty fungus nats also peat farms causes a massive impact on our environment!  I also find the roots like to be snug so avoid reporting your plant in a massive pot. Your houseplant soil will vary depending on the grower. It's very unlikely that you will need to re-pot your plant for a while. 

    Houseplant watering needs

    Over and Underwater is how most houseplants get killed but again if you have good draining soil you can't really over water. How often will depend on the plant's environment, soil, pot where its positioned and the time of year. Every plant has its own watering needs so I always check the plant's soil before I water. I check the top 2/3cm of soil just by carefully poking my finger in the soil I also check the bottom of the pot, if the soil looks wet I would normally skip watering. The 2/3cm method works okay but I did kill a lot of houseplants this way when I first started that's why a check out there bums first! So always check your plant before watering.
