Umbellata Ficus



Bright indirect light, but she can tolerate a few hours of direct sunlight each day (before 10am). Like a fiddle leaf fig, she doesn’t like to be moved once she’s found her happy place and can start to drop leaves if you move her around too much.


Allow the top of the soil to dry out 3 inches between waters. She likes one big drenching in the shower every couple of weeks rather than small cups of water more often. In the cooler months, you will find you only need to give her about 1 cup once a month and don’t worry about showers. Whatever you do, don’t leave water sitting in the drip tray for more than a day.

Create a bed of pebbles in a tray for it to sit on and make sure to always have water in the tray just below the top of the pebbles (you don’t want the water to be touching the pothole).
