Ficus Benghalensis, also known as the banyan tree or Ficus Benghalensis Roy, is a popular indoor plant with large, shiny green leaves. Here are some tips for caring for your Ficus Benghalensis Roy:

  1. Light: Ficus Benghalensis Roy prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, while too little light can cause the plant to become leggy.

  2. Water: Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering. Ficus Benghalensis Roy prefers slightly moist soil, but overwatering can lead to root rot. Water less frequently during the winter months.

  3. Humidity: Ficus Benghalensis Roy likes moderate to high humidity. You can increase the humidity around the plant by placing a tray of water nearby, using a humidifier, or grouping it with other plants.

  4. Temperature: Ficus Benghalensis Roy prefers temperatures between 60-75°F (15-24°C). It is important to keep the plant away from cold drafts and air conditioning.

  5. Soil: Ficus Benghalensis Roy prefers well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter.

  6. Fertilizer: Feed your Ficus Benghalensis Roy with a balanced fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Do not fertilize during the winter months.

  7. Pruning: Prune your Ficus Benghalensis Roy to maintain its shape and encourage bushier growth. You can also remove any yellowing or damaged leaves or branches.

  8. Propagation: Ficus Benghalensis Roy can be propagated by taking stem cuttings and placing them in water or moist soil until roots form.

  9. Toxicity: Ficus Benghalensis Roy is toxic to pets and humans if ingested. Keep it out of reach of children and pets.

By following these tips, you can help your Ficus Benghalensis Roy thrive and enjoy its attractive foliage in your home or office.
