Ficus binnendijkii Amstel King has large, leathery, banana-shaped leaves and is a low-maintenance, versatile and attractive indoor greenery option. New leaf growth is flushed pink and red which adds extra interest. It is closely related to the Ficus Alii and is sometimes incorrectly referred to as Ficus longifolia.
Branching out? This Ficus has long thin side branches that might need an occasional trim to maintain its sleek shape.
Although more robust than many other Ficus, leaf drop may still occur with insufficient light or incorrect watering. Adjust as necessary and your plant should quickly recover.
Sticky latex will ooze from the ends of the cut stems! This can be an irritant, so make sure to wash your hands if any comes into contact with your skin.
