Houseplant Cultural information: Variegated Ficus such as this one are more difficult to keep than the solid green varieties. Place your plant in an area with at least one half day of direct sunshine. If your plant is against a wall, rotate the plant every few days. Keep from cold drafts. Allow the surface of the soil to dry to the touch between waterings. Water with tepid water. Feed monthly if the plant is actively growing... bi-monthly otherwise. 

There are several varieties of variegated Ficus available in many different forms... such as bushes, braids, trees, knots and grown on rocks. Your local garden center should have a good selection in stock.
