6" Ficus Jacqueline Bush
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.
