Description: Ficus 'Triangularis', scientifically known as Ficus triangularis, is a unique tropical plant admired for its distinctive, triangular-shaped leaves. The glossy, deep green leaves are neatly arranged, creating a striking and geometric appearance. Native to Africa, this evergreen plant thrives indoors, adding a touch of exotic charm and architectural elegance to homes and offices. Ficus 'Triangularis' typically grows up to 3-4 feet tall indoors, making it an excellent choice for adding height, texture, and visual interest to various indoor environments.

Care Instructions:


  • Prefers bright, indirect light to maintain its vibrant green foliage. Can tolerate some direct sunlight but avoid prolonged exposure to intense afternoon sun, which can scorch the leaves.


  • Water thoroughly when the top inch of soil is dry. Ficus 'Triangularis' prefers consistently moist soil but is tolerant of occasional dry spells. Reduce watering in the winter months when the plant's growth slows.


  • Thrives in moderate to high humidity environments. Regular misting or using a humidity tray can help maintain the necessary moisture levels, especially in dry indoor conditions.


  • Prefers temperatures between 65°F and 85°F (18°C - 29°C). Protect from cold drafts and temperatures below 55°F (13°C).


  • Use a well-draining, rich organic potting mix. A mix containing peat moss, perlite, and compost works well to support healthy growth.


  • Feed with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding in the fall and winter.


  • Prune to maintain the desired shape and size. Remove any dead or damaged leaves to encourage new growth and keep the plant healthy. Pruning also helps to control the plant's growth and maintain its elegant appearance.

Styling Tips:

  • Statement Plant: Place Ficus 'Triangularis' in a prominent spot where its distinctive, triangular leaves can be admired. Its unique foliage makes it a stunning statement piece in any room.
  • Corner Filler: Use Ficus 'Triangularis' as a corner filler to add height and texture to empty spaces. Its upright growth habit makes it perfect for this purpose.
  • Grouping with Other Plants: Combine with other shade-loving plants like monstera, philodendrons, and calatheas to create a diverse and visually appealing indoor garden.
  • Modern Decor: The geometric, architectural foliage of Ficus 'Triangularis' fits well with modern, minimalist decor. Use a sleek, contemporary pot to complement its striking appearance.
  • Office Plant: Its low maintenance and adaptability make it an excellent choice for office environments. Place it in a well-lit corner to add a touch of nature and vibrancy to your workspace.

Ficus 'Triangularis', with its unique triangular foliage and relatively easy care requirements, is a fantastic addition to any plant collection. Its bold appearance and adaptability make it a favorite among plant enthusiasts and interior designers looking to add a touch of tropical elegance and geometric beauty to their spaces.
