Comments: This is a Ficus that produces variegated green and white foliage. It is a tropical and cannot withstand freezing temperatures, however it can take temperatures right at freezing. It is upright growing and like many Ficus selections will drop lower foliage when growing in unfavorable conditions, especially in locations with low light. Provide as much natural sunlight as possible during the early part of the day. Maintain a soil which is moist to the touch. Highs and lows in watering and light will cause leaf drop.
