Ficus Audrey Bush 10”

Ficus Audrey Bush 10”

Light Requirements

  • Brightness: Ficus Audrey thrives in bright, indirect light. While it can tolerate some direct sunlight, avoid harsh midday sun, which can scorch the leaves.
  • Placement: Place your plant near an east or north-facing window. If placed in a south or west-facing window, use a sheer curtain to filter the light.


  • Frequency: Water when the top 1-2 inches of soil feel dry to the touch. Ficus Audrey prefers to dry out slightly between waterings.
  • Method: Water thoroughly until water drains out of the bottom of the pot. Ensure the pot has drainage holes to prevent water from accumulating at the bottom, which can lead to root rot.

Humidity and Temperature

  • Humidity: Ficus Audrey prefers moderate humidity levels. If your home is very dry, increase humidity by using a humidifier, placing a water tray nearby, or misting the plant occasionally.
  • Temperature: Maintain temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C). Avoid exposing the plant to temperatures below 60°F (15°C) and protect it from drafts or sudden temperature changes.

Soil and Fertilization

  • Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix. A mix designed for houseplants, containing peat, perlite, and compost, works well for Ficus Audrey.
  • Fertilization: Feed your Ficus Audrey every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer. Reduce feeding during the fall and winter months.

Pruning and Cleaning

  • Pruning: Regularly prune to remove any dead or damaged leaves and to shape the plant. Use clean, sharp scissors or pruning shears to make clean cuts. Pruning can also help manage the plant’s size and encourage bushier growth.
  • Cleaning: Gently wipe the leaves with a damp cloth to remove dust and keep them looking vibrant. This also helps the plant to photosynthesize more efficiently.


  • Frequency: Repot every 1-2 years or when the plant becomes root-bound. Spring is the best time to repot your Ficus Audrey.
  • Pot Selection: Choose a pot that is 1-2 inches larger in diameter than the current one and ensure it has drainage holes.

Pest Management

  • Common Pests: Ficus Audrey can be susceptible to pests like spider mites, mealybugs, and scale. Regular inspections and keeping the plant clean can help prevent infestations.
  • Control: If you notice pests, treat them early with insecticidal soap, neem oil, or by wiping them off with a damp cloth.

Support and Staking

  • Staking: As your Ficus Audrey grows, it may need support to stay upright. Use a stake or plant support to provide stability if necessary.
  • Rotation: Rotate the plant every few weeks to ensure even growth and prevent it from leaning towards the light source.

Troubleshooting Common Issues

  • Yellowing Leaves: Overwatering is a common cause. Ensure the soil is well-draining and the plant is not sitting in water.
  • Leaf Drop: This can occur due to changes in light, temperature, or humidity. Ensure the plant is in a stable environment with consistent care.
  • Brown Leaf Edges: This can be caused by low humidity or inconsistent watering. Increase humidity and ensure even watering practices.

General Tips

  • Acclimation: When bringing a new Ficus Audrey home, give it time to acclimate to its new environment. Avoid moving it frequently.
  • Observation: Pay attention to the plant’s overall health and make adjustments as needed. Healthy Ficus Audrey plants will have vibrant, sturdy leaves and show steady growth.
