The exotic Ornamental Fig, Ficus benjamina is a houseplant that's currently bang on trend and on everyone's wish list. With a beautiful spiral, twisted stem, this variety, ‘Danielle’, adds a distinctive, tropical feel to your home.
The trunk of the plant has been formed into a stunning spiral shape as the tree has grown, making it a great ornamental feature plant, and it won’t straighten over time so will keep its original shape.
The glossy, rich green leaves of 'Daniella' are held on top of the trunk in a globe, and over time, the slender branches will begin to weep, softening the plant and making a definite talking point.
Not just a pretty face, Ficus is well known for helping keep the air in your home clean as it filters out pollutants keeping it fresh and clean - according to NASA, weeping figs fight formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene, found in furniture, fireplace smoke, and common household products.
Very easy to care for, once you have found the perfect place for your spiral fig, you can more or less leave it alone and let it do its 'thing' as long as it's kept out of drafts.
Supplied as a mature plant on a single spiral stem in a 20cm pot. Height approx 1m including pot.
Please note that the decorative pot is not included, see ‘as supplied’ photo.
