Ficus microcarpa Moclame has lovely, glossy oval leaves. It is easy to care for and is well known for filtering the air of pollutants, making it an ideal healthy plant for any home or office. Growing in a twisted stem form creates an elegant indoor tree style for eye-catching interest from the coil of stems to the bushy canopy of lush tropical foliage. Ficus Moclame has many common names including Pot Belly Fig, Laurel Fig, Laurel Rubber, Curtain Fig and Strangling Fig.
Feeling thirsty? Ficus Moclame prefers its soil to be slightly moist at all times. Underwatering can lead to browning crispy leaves.
Insufficient light can trigger leaf drop. Find a spot with plenty of indirect sunlight 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.
