Ficus maclellandii (common name Alii fig or banana-leaf fig) is a species of fig plant native to India, Southeast Asia and China. The narrow, slender leaves are 8–13 cm long
In its native range, it grows in the tropical forest so is very versatile coping well with bright lights and shade which makes it an ideal houseplant. We are selling large trees that are over 180cm tall for instant impact.
Ficus trees make a great houseplant gift for friends or family - surprise them with rainforest style! If you are giving this as a gift, make sure you include your message at the basket stage. We’ll deliver the houseplant along with a free, handwritten card - and we’ll leave out the paperwork with the price on!
