Ficus 'Eldorado' is a popular variety of the Ficus family known for its attractive green and yellow variegated foliage. As a houseplant, it can grow to be quite large, and its care is similar to that of other Ficus species. Here are some guidelines:

  1. Light: Ficus 'Eldorado' prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, while too little light can cause the variegation to fade.

  2. Water: This plant likes its soil to be consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch or so of the soil to dry out between waterings to prevent root rot. Overwatering can lead to yellowing leaves.

  3. Humidity: As a tropical plant, Ficus 'Eldorado' prefers high humidity. Consider placing the plant on a tray of pebbles with water, using a humidifier, or misting the plant regularly.

  4. Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix, such as an indoor potting mix with added perlite or orchid bark for increased drainage.

  5. Temperature: Ficus 'Eldorado' prefers warmer temperatures, ideally between 60°F and 75°F. Avoid cold drafts and sudden temperature changes.

  6. Fertilizer: During the growing season (spring and summer), feed your plant every 2-4 weeks with a balanced houseplant fertilizer. Reduce feeding to once a month or less during the fall and winter months.

  7. Repotting: Ficus plants prefer to be a little root-bound and only need repotting every 2-3 years. The best time to repot is in the spring.

  8. Pruning: Pruning can help maintain your plant's shape and size. Prune in the spring or summer and always make sure to use clean, sharp scissors to avoid disease.

  9. Pest Control: Regularly check your plant for pests such as aphids, mealybugs, and spider mites. If you see any pests, treat with an appropriate insecticide or neem oil.

Remember, the specific needs of your Ficus 'Eldorado' may vary depending on its environment. Regularly check your plant's health and adjust care as needed. With proper care, your Ficus 'Eldorado' can thrive and be a beautiful addition to your home.
