Ficus "Starlight":

  1. Light: Ficus "Starlight" prefers bright, indirect light. Place it near a window where it can receive plenty of filtered sunlight throughout the day. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight, as this can scorch the leaves.

  2. Temperature: This plant prefers temperatures between 65°F to 75°F (18°C to 24°C). Avoid exposing it to drafts or sudden temperature changes.

  3. Watering: Water your Ficus "Starlight" when the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch. Water thoroughly, allowing excess water to drain away from the pot. Avoid overwatering, as Ficus plants are susceptible to root rot.

  4. Humidity: Ficus plants prefer moderate to high humidity. You can increase humidity by placing the plant on a tray filled with pebbles and water or by using a room humidifier.

  5. Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix that retains some moisture but allows excess water to drain away. A mix of peat moss, perlite, and pine bark is suitable.

  6. Fertilization: Feed your Ficus "Starlight" with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing during the winter months when growth slows down.

  7. Pruning: Prune your Ficus "Starlight" to maintain its shape and remove any dead or yellowing leaves. You can also prune to control its size if it starts to outgrow its space.

  8. Pests: Keep an eye out for common indoor plant pests such as aphids, mealybugs, and spider mites. If you notice any pests, treat the plant promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

  9. Repotting: Repot your Ficus "Starlight" every 1-2 years or when it outgrows its current pot. Choose a slightly larger pot with good drainage holes and fresh potting mix.

  10. Toxicity: Ficus plants, including Ficus "Starlight," contain sap that can be irritating to the skin and toxic if ingested. Keep it out of reach of children and pets.

With proper care, your Ficus "Starlight" can thrive indoors, adding beauty and charm to your home or office space with its striking variegated foliage.
