Starlight is a striking cream and green variegated cultivar of the Weeping Fig. Slow growing but one of the prettiest plants you can own and a real eye-catcher when mature. Give it plenty of bright light and watch her reach for the stars.
Ideal for beginner plant keepers or beyond.
Light Requirements: Bright Indirect Light - partial full sun. Bright light is essential to maintain the gold variegation on the leaves.
Moisture & Soil Requirements: Prefers evenly moist soil with good drainage in warm seasons - never soggy soil. Relatively thirsty but adaptable for most conditions
Growth & Nutrients: Tree / shrub in shape. Suits medium-larger apartments or homes and large gardens away from water pipes due to their aggressive root system. Very easy to shape and prune, common topiary and bonsai species. Feed with a general-purpose fertiliser for containers from the start of spring each year to autumn when growth slows down.
Temperature, Humidity & Ambient requirements: Prefers warm, humid environments inside and adaptable for nearly any situation. Grows well outdoors in frost-free Northern NZ.
Toxicity: Toxic to pets and people. Don't let anyone or anything eat this. Avoid skin contact with sticky white sap when pruning.
