Description

The Ficus ‘Alii’ does not actually exist in the wild, it is a relatively new man-made hybrid that has become extremely popular as it makes for a rather handsome indoor tree. It has long tapered leaves that have a wonderful natural gloss, and as the tree grows the lower trunk may shed its leaves to give a palm tree-like appearance. Experienced growers may want to experiment with braiding the trunks to give the Ficus ‘Alii’ an even bigger visual impact. Their stunning appearance more than makes up for the fact that they do not bloom indoors – their preferred environment – instead forming small yellow globular inflorescence’s, which have a similar appearance to berries.

Although it doesn’t drop leaves as readily as its relative Ficus benjamina, leaf drop is possible if it does not receive enough light or regular watering. The Ficus ‘Alii’ requires regular watering throughout the growing season, but only rarely over the Winter months, instead benefiting from the occasional misting. In terms of light, it always likes to be in bright areas, but it will tolerate a small amount of direct sun. It will thrive in average room humidity of 40-50% and average room temperature, making it the perfect low maintenance house plant, with lots of visual impact.

  5. Talaat Aggour (verified owner)

  6. Erin Moseley (verified owner)

    The tree is very big and beautiful. Got a little cramped in the box but after a few days is looking full again

  7. Sharon McCants (verified owner)

    I just repotted it today, due to its snug fit and at your suggestion to wait a week. I made sure the 7 gallon plastic pot has pebbles at the bottom for proper drainage and miracle grow potting soil. At the moment it is being rained on until tomorrow. Then I will bring it inside to a west facing window where it will remain. If I have any questions or concerns about either plant, I will let you know. Thank you!

  8. Lauren (verified owner)

    Arrived bigger than expected and full of new growth. Very happy planter!

  9. Graham (verified owner)

Why others chose this plant.

I have a Fiddle Leaf Fig tree and I ordered the Ficus Alii because it is unsual and a friend has one and I fell in love with it.

Focus Benjamin was on my list until I found out about this one. Braided and on sale. Also, this one, leaves does not drop like the Benjamin. So I read. Got a large one, and looking forward for it to grow in Bohemian style decor.

Looking for something different to absorb CO2 in my office, something luscious and unusual that you don’t often see when plant shopping

My second time ordering this tree. The first one was beautiful and is doing great. Nice addition to our loving room

I have one and wanted a second. This is the only houseplant I have been able to keep alive more than 5 years.

Nice indoor tree

beautiful elegant plant

Ficus tree are not only beautiful but very easy to take care of

Got something to discuss?

Hi! Our large Ficus Alii’s are 3 to 4 feet tall which includes the pot in this height.

I want a ficus for the living room. But I’m concerned about temperature; in the winter we let the room drop to 50 degrees when we aren’t home (and it’s presumably colder right by the window). When we are home, the room can occasionally be 75+ for short periods. We don’t use a/c in the summer, so the room is often 90+.
Would a ficus of any variety tolerate that? Should we look at something else? We do have a nice South facing window spot.

Hi! All of our indoor ficus are grown to be placed in homes. We recommend temperatures to be above 40 degrees. The Ficus Alii and Weeping Fig should be placed in bright indirect sunlight away from heavy traffic flow and drafts to prevent leaves from shedding.

Does the braided Alii have denser/thicker foliage than the single stem?
