Huge Ficus 'Danielle'
The Ficus Danielle is a bushier, slower-growing variety of the Ficus benjamina, and is also known as the Weeping Danielle Fig. This plant's mature leaves are a beautiful dark green, while the new growth is a contrasting lime green, all sprouting from cool, dark purple branches. The dense growth pattern of the leaves makes this plant a fantastic air purifier! Similar to the other relatives in the Ficus genus, the Danielle is toxic to pets and humans – keep the leaves and sap out of reach of any curious pets and people.

DANIELLE FICUS CARE
The best light for the Audrey ficus is several hours of bright, indirect light - you can place them in a bright room, but away from the window. Direct sunlight, especially in the afternoon, will burn the leaves.
Danielles prefer soil that is left to partially dry between waterings and, in typical Ficus fashion, the Danielle prefers a regular and consistent watering in the spring and summer. Check the soil moisture before watering, if it's try 2-3" into the pot, then give the plant a drink. Water thoroughly, until you see water coming from the drainage holes or collecting in the tray underneath.
When they are grown in pots, the Danielles can grow to be anywhere around 10 feet tall! It is a fast grower and may need to be repotted up to once per year – do so in the early spring for best results.
