Plant Overview

The Ficus Audrey is the national tree of India. It boasts velvety soft leaves and a rich, vibrant green color that is sure to bring any room to life. This plant is considered sacred in India and is said to be the tree under which Buddha received enlightenment. 

This plant is a natural air purifier known to filter airborne toxins from the air, promoting a clean, healthy environment in your home. Although it is known to grow up to 20m in its natural habitat, this indoor variety only grows between 1.5m and 3m tall. 

PlantX Top Tip: Notice your Ficus Audrey’s roots peeking out? That means it’s time to repot your plant!

Ficus Audrey - Common Problems

My Ficus Audrey’s leaves are falling off, what do I do?

Your Ficus Audrey will sometimes drop leaves as it grows. This is completely normal and is nothing to worry about. However, if you find that your Ficus Audrey is losing multiple leaves at once, this can be a sign of over or underwatering. Be sure to water your plant when the top 5cm of soil are completely dry, and ensure that your Ficus Audrey is planted in a well-draining pot.

Help! I think my Ficus Audrey has root rot!

Root rot is actually quite uncommon in Ficus Audrey plants. If you find unusual leaf spots on your Ficus Audrey, this is more likely a sign of a bacterial or fungal problem. You can treat this by removing any infected leaves with a pair of shears and using a bactericide or fungicide on the rest of the plant to treat the disease. Pests can carry diseases too, so be sure to keep an eye out and remove any that you do find.

Signs of Overwatering

Brown, yellowing edging, and leaf tips.

Common Pests

Check for thrips, root-knot nematodes, spider mites (especially in winter), and Ficus mealybugs.

Can my Ficus Audrey take full sun?

You should avoid placing your Ficus Audrey in direct sunlight, as this can cause its leaves to burn. We recommend positioning your Ficus Audrey near an east-facing window so that it can receive indirect sunlight.

Shipping and Returns

We can ship to anywhere within Canada. However, it may take longer for you to receive your products if you live in a remote region, such as the Eastern Provinces, especially as we ship from BC.

Please allow up to five business days for your plant to be delivered. If you live in one of the Eastern Provinces, this may take slightly longer, typically around seven business days.

Please also note that tax rates vary dependent on province. These too will be calculated at checkout to comply with provincial laws.

We are happy to return any defective items you may have received. Please get in touch with our customer service team at info@bloomboxclub.ca and they will be more than happy to assist!

If your item is found to be defective or damaged, you will be entitled to a full refund. In many cases, we will not require the item be delivered back to us, however, in some circumstances we may request that this it is. If this is the case, our customer service team will gladly help you through this process.

You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
