    Ficus Yellow Gem, also known as the Council tree or Lofty Fig, is an epiphytic plant indigenous to the tropical areas of Southeastern Asia that is a fantastic addition to any collection if you're a fan of ficus trees. Ficus Yellow Gem has oblong, slightly pointed leaves that are comparable to those of a rubber tree but are more pointed and have more prominent veins. It has beautiful, variegated leaves in emerald and lime green, making it a perfect plant for adding color to your home. Ficus Yellow Gem is a cultivar of Ficus altissima, a plant that shares similarities with other ficus varieties such as Ficus Audrey, Ficus Lyrata, and Ficus Elastica. It is relatively easy to care for, even if you're new to ficus plants. To care for your Ficus Yellow Gem plant, use fast-draining soil with a pH level of 6.5-7, such as Fiddle Leaf Fig Soil, a soil mix created specifically for Ficus plants. Water it only when the top 4 inches of soil feel dry to the touch, and keep it in bright, indirect light, such as an east-facing window or a spot near a south- or west-facing window. Ficus Yellow Gem prefers temperatures ranging from 60°F to 75°F and a relative humidity of 50% or more. We recommend using a humidifier to maintain optimal humidity levels. Overall, Ficus Yellow Gem is a low-maintenance and beautiful plant that will draw attention with its unique foliage.

    "Came in perfect condition--thank you!"


    "Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."


    "This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"


    "Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"


    "This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
