Ficuses are popular choices for indoor plants. You likely have a ficus seedling in your home. So, how do you care for it to ensure it grows beautifully and contributes to your home decor? Proper care is essential, but this doesn't necessarily involve purchasing specialist fertilizers from garden centers. A simple monthly watering with a specific product found in most grocery stores is all it needs.

Benefits of having a ficus at home

Ficus plants come equipped with beautiful green leaves that add a touch of greenery to your home. Moreover, ficuses are known to detoxify the air. Interestingly, there are about two thousand varieties of this plant on Earth. For indoor ficuses, you can find these species at garden centers:

  • Climbing
  • Narrow-leaved
  • Lyre-leaved
  • Rubber
  • Benjamin

Water your ficus with a unique product for amazing results

Want to know how to care for your ficus at home? It turns out that non-alcoholic beer works wonders for this plant. This beverage can help your ficus grow faster and produce new shoots at an accelerated rate. Once a month, you just need to dilute the drink with water in a 1:1 ratio and water your plant. However, flavored beer is not recommended for this process.

What else should you know about ficus care? Avoid watering it with water directly from the tap; let the water sit at room temperature for at least three days. Filtered water is also an excellent option; just make sure it's at room temperature. The frequency of watering matters too. In summer, water your ficus twice a week, while in winter, once a week is sufficient.
