This plant loves a lot of sun in order to grow successfully. Supplemental grow lights, if placed in darker areas of the house, will be needed. One of the most popular bonsai trees, this Ficus plant sports thick "belly" stems grafted onto microcarpa leaves to create a unique indoor houseplant. It loves high humidity levels so daily misting will help with the plant's health. Otherwise, a naturally humid room in the house like the kitchen or bathroom will suffice.
