Ficus maclellandii Alii is a relatively new cultivar that makes a wonderful low-maintenance house plant. Alii has long, slender leaves that taper to a point (their other common name is Narrow Leafed Fig). With attractive, glossy leaves and graceful, arching stems that are almost palm-like in appearance, it is a versatile and attractive indoor green foliage option.
The brighter the better! Ficus Alii is more robust than its cousins, but will drop some leaves if it doesn’t get enough bright light.
Although more robust than other Ficus', leaf drop may still occur with improper watering. Adjust your watering schedule and your plant should quickly recover.
Give your Ficus a trim to maintain the desired shape, but be aware that 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.
