DescriptionThe bark of a young plant has a brown, dark color, but acquires a grey tint with white stripes as it grows. Ficus amstel king leaves are long, elongated, leathery and glossy, somewhat curved along the middle vein, which is most pronounced on the back of the leaf plate. This evergreen plant bears dark green, shiny leaves. They are lanceolate. Already the red shoots are very beautiful to look at. The leaf may be as long as 30 cm, and as wide as 6 cm. Petiole grows to 4 cm.Lighting: this kind of ficus likes bright places, but without direct sunlight. Lack of lighting can slow down growth and deform the crown.Watering: the summer period is characterized by abundant watering of the plant, but you should take care not to fill it. Before each watering, the top layer of soil should dry a little.Air humidity: ensure high humidity: you should regularly spray the plants with soft, lime free water and rubbing leaves with a wet sponge. Pruning: with the appropriate pruning measures, the narrow-leaved rubber tree ‘amstel king’ can be kept in shape.
