Ficus, the indoor plant that everyone wants for its elegance and simple care

Having plants at home helps in many ways : to de-stress, to give a cooler style to the home, to refresh the house and even to repel mosquitoes or, on the other hand, to pollinate and improve the environment. The plants are fabulous and we love them.

However, not all plants will survive in just any home . There are cases that support all types of environments, such as cacti or others that refer to a certain climate such as orchids , but both require specific care to survive longer. On the other hand, plants such as the so-called ficus are ideal for all types of home.

Ficus, the most beautiful plant

This plant is beautiful on its own. Its large green leaves shine in any type of weather and above all, they are very easy to care for. Even with special care, it can flower and bear fruit similar to figs and during spring it usually expands as much as possible.

This is a strangling arboreal plant , which in its juvenile state, develops by climbing trees, hardening its roots while hugging the tree to prevent it from going sideways, keeping them upright. However, in its home version or that does not grow on its own, it is a spacious and beautiful plant that always stands firm and reaches 30 cm in height in natural conditions. Its leaves reach 6 to 13 cm long and its fruit is edible for small animals such as birds.
