"Variegated Ficus" (Ficus benjamina) or "Variegated Ficus elastica" (Ficus elastica). These are popular houseplants that display variegation, meaning they have leaves with different colors or patterns.
Variegated Ficus plants typically have green leaves with patches, stripes, or marbling of different colors, such as white, cream, yellow, or even pink. The specific patterns and colors can vary depending on the cultivar.
Here are some general care guidelines for variegated Ficus plants:
Light: These plants thrive in bright, indirect light. They can tolerate some direct sunlight, but too much can lead to leaf burn. Placing them near a window with filtered light is usually ideal.
Watering: Allow the top inch or so of the soil to dry out before watering. It's important not to overwater, as Ficus plants are prone to root rot. Adjust your watering frequency based on the conditions and the moisture needs of the plant.
Humidity: Variegated Ficus plants appreciate moderate to high humidity levels. If the air in your home is dry, you can increase humidity by using a humidifier, placing the plant on a tray with water and pebbles, or misting the leaves occasionally.
Temperature: Variegated Ficus plants prefer temperatures between 60-75°F (15-24°C). Avoid exposing them to cold drafts or sudden temperature changes.
Soil: Use well-draining soil to prevent waterlogging. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and regular potting soil works well.
Fertilization: Feed variegated Ficus plants with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every two to four weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or stop fertilizing in fall and winter when the plant is in its dormant period.
Pruning: Regular pruning helps to maintain the shape and size of the plant. You can trim back leggy growth and remove any yellow or dead leaves.
Variegated Ficus plants are generally considered low-maintenance indoor plants, but they may require some extra care due to their variegation. Monitor their growth, adjust watering as needed, and provide them with suitable light conditions to help them thrive.
