Ficus Golden King, also known as Ficus 'Golden King' or Ficus elastica 'Golden King', is a beautiful and popular houseplant with variegated leaves. Here are some care tips to help you keep your Ficus Golden King healthy and thriving:

  1. Light: Ficus Golden King prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, while low light can lead to slow growth and smaller leaves.

  2. Water: Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between watering. Water the plant thoroughly, and then allow the excess water to drain out of the bottom of the pot. Overwatering can lead to root rot and other issues.

  3. Humidity: Ficus Golden King prefers 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 Golden King prefers warm temperatures between 60-80°F (15-27°C). Keep the plant away from drafts and cold windows.

  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.

  7. Repotting: Ficus Golden King 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 Golden King can be prone to spider mites, mealybugs, and scale insects. Inspect the plant regularly and treat any pests promptly with an appropriate insecticide.

  9. Propagation: Ficus Golden King can be propagated by stem cuttings. Take a cutting of a healthy stem and place it in a well-draining soil mix.

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