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.
