Ficus Benghalensis Audrey, also known as the Banyan Fig or Indian Banyan, is a popular houseplant known for its large, attractive leaves. Here are some care tips for Ficus Benghalensis Audrey:

  1. Light: Ficus Benghalensis Audrey prefers bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves.

  2. Water: Water the plant thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Make sure the pot has good drainage to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.

  3. Humidity: Ficus Benghalensis Audrey prefers high humidity, so it's a good idea to mist the leaves regularly or place the pot on a tray filled with pebbles and water.

  4. Temperature: Keep the plant in a warm and humid environment, ideally between 65-75Β°F (18-24Β°C). Avoid exposing the plant to cold drafts.

  5. Soil: Plant your Ficus Benghalensis Audrey in well-draining potting soil, and make sure the pot has good drainage.

  6. Fertilizer: Feed your plant with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer once a month during the growing season (spring and summer).

  7. Pruning: Prune any yellow or damaged leaves regularly to maintain the plant's health and appearance. You can also prune the plant to control its size and shape.

  8. Propagation: You can propagate Ficus Benghalensis Audrey by air layering or stem cuttings. Air layering involves rooting a section of the stem while it is still attached to the parent plant, while stem cuttings can be taken and propagated in moist soil.

Note: Ficus Benghalensis Audrey is toxic when ingested, so keep it away from children and pets.
