Ficus Altissima, also known as the Council Tree or the Branched Rubber Plant, is a popular indoor tree that is relatively easy to care for. Here are some care tips to help you keep your Ficus Altissima Branched Tree healthy and thriving:

  1. Light: Ficus Altissima prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, but avoid placing it in a spot that receives intense, direct sun, as this can scorch the leaves. If the plant is not getting enough light, its leaves will become dull and the new growth will be small and stunted.

  2. Water: Water your Ficus Altissima when the top inch of soil is dry. The plant prefers slightly moist soil, but can tolerate some drought. Avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot. Allow the water to drain out of the bottom of the pot and empty any excess water that accumulates in the saucer.

  3. Humidity: Ficus Altissima prefers moderate to high humidity. You can increase humidity by placing a humidifier near the plant or by placing a tray of water near the plant. Misting the leaves regularly can also help increase humidity.

  4. Temperature: Ficus Altissima prefers warm temperatures between 60-75°F (16-24°C). It can tolerate temperatures as low as 50°F (10°C), but avoid placing it in a drafty spot or near a cold window.

  5. Fertilizer: You can fertilize the plant once a month during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced liquid fertilizer. Do not fertilize during the dormant season (fall and winter).

  6. Pruning: You can prune the plant to control its size and shape or to remove any damaged or yellowing leaves. This will also help promote new growth. If you want the tree to grow taller, prune the lower branches to encourage upward growth.

  7. Repotting: Ficus Altissima does not require frequent repotting and can remain in the same pot for several years. Use a well-draining soil mix and a pot that is one size larger than the current pot.

  8. Pests: Ficus Altissima can be prone to spider mites and mealybugs. Inspect the plant regularly and treat any pests promptly with an appropriate insecticide.

Following these care tips will help your Ficus Altissima Branched Tree thrive and stay healthy. With proper care, this beautiful plant can be a stunning addition to any indoor garden.
