Ficus Religiosa is also know as Bohdi Tree or Sacred Fig. With its beautiful heart shaped leaves, this ficus will grow big if you give it room to.
They have a strong tendency to go dormant in the winter. They may drop their leaves and wont look as stunning as in the warmer months, but in the spring they will leaf out and grow vigorously.
For best growing conditions keep in bright, indirect lighting.
Although Ficus religiosa is said to grow well in full sun, it may suffer a little leaf burn on very hot days. From our observation, afternoon shade to dappled shade is best. Like most ficus species, a humus rich soil that retains some moisture is best.
Ficus religiosa will cope with dry spells once established, however it will perform better with moisture through summer.
