The Audrey Ficus is as easygoing and lovely as houseplants come. While some members of the Ficus family have a reputation for being challenging, that’s not Audrey. Also known as Ficus elastica, Variegated Rubber tree, banyan tree, or Ficus Elastica Audrey, this Ficus has a tree-like stature and boasts large, thick, oblong leaves in a bright-green hue with pronounced yellow midribs and veining. The Audrey Ficus certainly has opinions regarding the type of care it receives, and once you understand what this plant wants, it is very easy to maintain.

Best Locations For Growing Audrey Ficus

Location matters for all plants, but it is vital for Audrey Ficus. A sunny spot with indirect light and average to above-average humidity is best. Once you find a good location for Audrey, try not to move her. Plants that are acclimated to an area will thrive and can proliferate. 

Audrey Ficus Sunlight Requirements

A south- or west-facing window usually is best for the Audrey Ficus. This houseplant needs several hours of bright indirect light to thrive. Too little light and the plant will struggle. Direct sunlight, especially for an extended time, may burn the leaves.

Audrey Ficus Care

Periodically wipe the leaves down with a damp cloth. Dust buildup on the foliage can prevent this plant from conducting photosynthesis. Avoid chemical cleaners, which can damage the delicate fuzz that naturally forms on the leaves, and simply wipe them off using a wet cloth.

Watering Audrey Ficus

The Audrey Ficus has medium water needs. Feel the soil to determine the dryness level, and only water when the top few inches of soil dry out. Do not let the soil completely dry out because this beauty needs consistent dampness. Drench the soil when the plant needs a drink and remove excess water that collects in the tray or cache pot. Average household humidity is acceptable, but be ready with a humidifier or pebble tray if the foliage starts to dry along the edges.

Feeding Audrey Ficus

Feed Audrey monthly during the growing season. Regular applications of fertilizer will keep this plant happy and healthy. Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer for best results

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
