Ficus Audrey

Ficus benghalensis Ficus Audrey
The Ficus Audrey has gained a lot of popularity lately due to its striking green foliage, its bold architectural shape, and its relatively easier care than its cousin, the ficus lyrata, or fiddle leaf fig. Use this plant to make a big splash in a bright spot in your home, and give it plenty of room to grow. The Ficus Audrey is considered a sacred tree in India.
