  1. Appearance: Ficus "Starlight" has glossy, elliptical leaves with creamy-white margins that create a striking contrast against the dark green center of the leaf. The variegation gives the plant a starry or speckled appearance, hence the name "Starlight."

  2. Growth Habit: Like other Ficus benjamina varieties, Ficus "Starlight" is typically grown as a small tree or shrub, with a dense, bushy growth habit. It can be trained to grow as a single-stemmed tree or pruned to maintain a more compact shape.

  3. Light Requirements: Ficus "Starlight" thrives in bright, indirect light but can tolerate some direct sunlight. Avoid placing it in full sun, as this can scorch the leaves. Inadequate light can result in leggy growth and leaf drop.

  4. Watering: It's important to water Ficus "Starlight" regularly, allowing the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. Avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot. Mist the foliage occasionally to increase humidity, especially during dry indoor conditions.

  5. Temperature and Humidity: Ficus "Starlight" prefers warm temperatures and high humidity, similar to its native tropical habitat. It can tolerate average indoor humidity levels but may benefit from occasional misting or placement near a humidifier, especially in dry environments.

  6. Maintenance: Pruning is often necessary to maintain the shape and size of Ficus "Starlight" and to remove any dead or leggy growth. Fertilize the plant during the growing season with a balanced liquid fertilizer to promote healthy growth and foliage.

  7. Pests and Diseases: Ficus plants, including "Starlight," are susceptible to pests such as spider mites, scale insects, and mealybugs. Regular inspection of the plant and prompt treatment of any pest infestations are essential to keep the plant healthy.

Overall, Ficus "Starlight" is prized for its attractive foliage and ease of care, making it a popular choice for indoor plant enthusiasts looking to add a touch of color and texture to their living spaces.
