Ficus Alli Fig Tree

This attractive indoor fig variety differs from the more commonly seen Weeping Fig.  It has long, drooping leaves, resembling those of a peach tree.  The Alii is not as prone to leaf drop as the F. benjamina, but it still does best in very bright indirect light or in direct morning or late afternoon sun.
Ficus maclellandii ‘Alii’ is sensitive to drafts so keep it away from air conditioning or heat vents.  It is prunable to control size and shape.  It is prettiest when grown as a standard with a single or braided trunk.  The cultivar ‘Amstel King’ has a fatter leaf than the Alii, but care is the same.
