Ficus Benjamina Tree

Zone 8-9 | Arin added on August 11, 2015 | Answered

Got a little Ficus Benjamina tree as a gift and it's really small and it's like a shrub. I wonder how can I make it more like a tree rather than shrub over time? I have so many plants I don't have a place for it near a window but I have artificial lighting, but they are SMD lights (you can see them in picture). Are they enough for my ficus tree to grow? Thank You so much.

Ficus like a bright indirect light.
Your small plant will not need any trimming until it is larger.
Here are some links for you.
