Excellent service and good quality plants. Items were dispatched very quickly, packaged well, and with good communication throughout. So far the plants look great and seem to be adjusting to their new home well.Can't fault at all, would recommend and will definitely be using again.

I usually don’t write reviewsI usually don’t write reviews, but this one was owed. Before purchasing my gorgeous Bird of Paradise I contacted the Company and got in touch with Cliah who went above and beyond to accommodate my request. Needless to say I received the plant in one day and is absolutely delightful. A very well deserved 5 start to them!

My Devil's Ivy plant arrived within a couple of days, very well packaged and totally healthy. Absolutely love it and the macrame hanger I ordered at the same time. Also, I made an email enquiry to oxy-plants and had the loveliest response. Such a positive experience, I strongly recommend this company for its efficiency and value for money.

How To Care For Banyan Fig

Allow the top couple of inches to dry between watering to avoid overwatering. A great way to gauge this is to place your thumb in the soil. If it’s dry, it’s time to water!

Banyan FIgs will survive in most conditions, but they really thrive in a brightly lit spot. Being from the Inidian subcontinent, keep your Ficus benghalensis away from any cold or drafts.

The Banyan Fig prefers a humid environment, but isn’t too demanding on this front. Give a misting occasionally and keep the leaves dust free.

Banyan Figs prefer a rich, well-draining soil. Ensure the water can drain away from the pot freely and ensure it does not sit in water. It likes consistently moist soil.

Fertilise monthly during spring and summer to keep your Banyan Fig happy and healthy.

As with many other members of the ficus family, it can occasionally become susceptible to pests such as scales and mealy bugs. To treat, simply order some of our neem oil on next day delivery, and spray on your leaves, soil until resolved!

Although Banyan Fig’s like to be kept quite root-bound, it is recommended to repot them every 2-3 years to allow some growth. If you want to keep your Ficus Roy from growing too tall you can pinch your plant back above a node, which also encourages it to branch out.

About Banyan Fig

Banyan Fig (Ficus Roy Benghalensis) also called Indian banyan, is a uniquely shaped tree of the mulberry family (Moraceae) native to the Indian subcontinent. The banyan reaches heights up to 30 metres (100 feet) and spreads laterally. Aerial roots that develop from their branches descend and take root in the soil to become new trunks. One tree may in time assume the appearance of a very dense thicket as a result of the tangle of roots and trunks. One individual, known as Thimmamma Marrimanu, in Andhra Pradesh, India, is thought to have the broadest canopy of any tree in the world. The banyan is also the national tree of India and symbolic to many Indians.

With dense, bright green foliage, the Banyan fig will make a perfect addition for those wanting an exotic showstopper in their home! To really show off this indoor plant’s looks, why not pair it with one of our sleeker and understated indoor pots? The curved classic or extruding Dallas would certainly make the perfect pair!

Please note: this plant comes in a plastic nursery pot. Browse our entire range of plant pots to add that extra charm and character to your home.
