Ficus Melany, also known as the Black Ficus, is a relatively new variety of the Ficus family that is highly sought after for its dark, almost black foliage. Here are some care tips for Ficus Melany:

  1. Light: Ficus Melany thrives in bright, indirect light. Avoid exposing the plant to direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves.

  2. Water: Water your Ficus Melany when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Do not overwater the plant as it can lead to root rot. Allow the water to drain from the pot and never let the plant sit in standing water.

  3. Humidity: Ficus Melany thrives in high humidity environments. Mist the leaves regularly or place the pot on a tray of pebbles and water to increase humidity levels.

  4. Temperature: Ficus Melany prefers warm temperatures and should be kept in an environment between 65-80°F (18-27°C). Avoid exposing the plant to cold drafts or sudden temperature changes.

  5. Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix for your Ficus Melany. Make sure the pot has good drainage to prevent waterlogging.

  6. Fertilizer: Ficus Melany benefits from regular fertilization during the growing season (spring and summer). Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 2-4 weeks to promote healthy growth.

  7. Pruning: Prune your Ficus Melany to control its size and shape. Regular pruning will also promote bushier growth and prevent the plant from becoming too leggy.

  8. Propagation: Ficus Melany can be propagated through stem cuttings. Take a 4-6 inch cutting and root it in moist soil or water.

Note: Ficus Melany is toxic to pets when ingested, so keep it out of reach of curious pets.
