With luscious long leaves in rich green tones, this plant stands tall, making a real statement. Unlike other Ficus varities, the Amstel King isn't fussy about being moved about and won't shed its leaves as a result - ideal if you like redecorating!
Make sure you give this tree the royal treatment as it is also called the 'Ficus Alii' - “Alii” means 'king' in Hawaii, where this plant was first grown commercially.
The Amstel King isn't a fan of the cold and appreciates a misting every now and then, too. During growing season, feel free to feed him with a small amount of a fertiliser a couple times a month. On the whole, this is a very easy-to-care for plant and will be forgiving of some occasional neglect.

Jo's Top Tip
Feel free to give your Amstel King a trim when he needs it, just make sure you wear gloves when doing so as it can leak a milky sap which can be an irritant.
