Can anyone identify this houseplant please .?
Vendée, Western France
Ficus benjamina. Evergreen houseplant that needs good light to do well and minimum temps of about 10C and out of cold draughts.
I would be keen to lift that one out of its pot and check the roots in case it needs potting on and then I'd use a John Innes no 3 loam based compost rather than multi purpose. Water well before and after and then let it drain before putting it back in its cache-pot.
I have a variegated version which is now 2m tall. It goes outside on the terrace in summer but not in full sun because that burns the creamy bits of foliage. I no longer pot mine on but do give it a spring refresh on the top level of compost and I feed it from early spring to mid summer. When it's back indoors I stand it in teh shower once a month to clean any dust off the foliage.
