Ficus Triangularis Variegated

Ficus Triangularis Variegated

Ficus Triangularis Variegated is native to south Africa. This ficus has a yellow-white leaf with irregular gray-green sections in the center with a bright variegation that really stands out. This rare ficus is called Triangularis, because the leaves are triangular in shape.
This African plant is slow-growing and makes a showy, small specimen plant. Prefers close to a window location with filtered light or morning sun,  thrives best in bright indirect sunlight. Placing them there, would maintain the variegation on its leaves and will do a big part in leaf loss. Losing its leaves is the most common problem with ficus plants. The standard reaction to stress is a leaf drop and usually it is from any of this reasons: under watering or over watering, low humidity, too little light, repotting, range in temperature (too hot or cold). They need to be kept in temperatures above 60 F and actually prefer temperatures above 70F.
For indoor ficus, care should be taken not to over water, otherwise possibly root rot will occur. Cold drafts from windows or doors will also harm them. Best to allow the soil to dry between watering.

The plant is at its  best when fertilized  monthly during the growing period (from spring to autumn) . Avoid feeding a ficus tree in the winter. Fertilize them with well balanced natural plant food, diluted to 1/2 the recommended strength. Excessive fertilization also can harm them.

Ficus Triangularis Variegated is an excellent plant for interior,patios and botanical gardens. It can maintain its tree-like shape regardless of their size, so this makes them ideal for bonsais or for huge houseplants in large spaces. Considered a rare Ficus species kept as a houseplant.
