    The Ficus Alii (Ficus maclellandii 'Alii' ) has long, thin leaves, making it a favorite statement tree for those looking for a graceful, refined aesthetic. It exhibits a true tree form with a narrow trunk topped with willow-like branches that will broaden for a full canopy as it matures. Despite its elegant looks, this is one of the easier ficus to care for indoors.

    New growth often has a golden-bronze hue that transitions to a deep, olive-like green as the leaves mature. The Ficus Alii is native to Southeast Asia, and as such can be sensitive to cold water which can cause leaf loss. To be safe, hydrate your plant with room-temperature water.

    Dimensions: Stands 5' - 6' tall. Nursery pot diameter is 14".

    Sunlight:High Light. This plant needs at least a few of hours of direct sunlight.

    NYC Plant Delivery Van:Local delivery in the New York City area from $20.

    Sunlight:Final Sale Only. Read our Floor Plant Return Policy.


    The Ficus Alii thrives in bright indirect light. It can tolerate multiple hours of direct sunlight. Over time, it can adjust to medium light spaces as well.

    Be sure to water your plant upon delivery. Ficus Alii prefer consistent evenly moist soil. Water the plant when the top 1"-2" of the soil are dry. Moderation is key, as overwatering can lead to root rot. We recommend using a saucer or a self-watering container with this plant. 

    High humidity, but can survive in low humidity spaces. Place your plant away from hot or cold air drafts. The abundance of leaves collect dust and should be wiped with a clean cloth several times a year. A mister is a helpful tool to assist in cleaning the leaves.
