Variegated Banyan Tree
Ficus Benghalensis Variegata or the Variegated Banyan Tree is a beautiful easy care houseplant, and a very popular choice for indoor decor. If allowed, these will grow from a mini shrub to an indoor tree. Ficus trees can maintain their tree-like shape regardless of their size, so this makes them ideal for bonsais or for massive houseplants in large spaces. Most ficus bonsai trees can produce aerial roots in their natural habitat, which are often presented in appealing bonsai creations with many aerial root pillars or root over rock styles. To enable aerial root growth in our homes a humidity of nearly 100% must be achieved artificially.
