Nielson's survival guide

Wants to become a plantstronaut

When Nielson was little, he wanted to become a Plantstronaut. He wanted to plant himself on the moon and become the first flying Ficus in the family. He eventually 'branched' out into other interests but when NASA awarded him the medal for top-10 most air purifying plant he got right back into the space thing. He's been making plans to colonize mars. Talk about a giant leap for plantkind!

What makes Nielson so special

Advanced Plant Parents only! The Benjamina twins Nielson and Wilson are picky plants. It takes some dedication and perseverance to grow and prosper any Ficus, and our Nielson over here is no exception. He loved being babied at his nursery where water came at just the right time and temperature was a blissful 20-something degrees. Get him a warm and cozy spot in bright light, away from direct sunlight and some plant food in summer so you and Nielson can become fast friends.
