Hi! My name is Alii.
My Latin name is Ficus Binnendijkii Alii. I am part of the large, well-known Ficus family. You will recognise me by my hundreds of leaves, which purify the air inside your house. I am an easy green friend, and I can shine like no other!
Originally, I come from many different places, all far, far away from the Netherlands. My roots are in parts of Asia, South America, Australia and Africa. Back in the day, I was an important player in the production of rubber. Nowadays, I have switched careers from producing rubber to being an indoor air-purifier.
Where should you place me?
Put me in a bright place where I won't be bothered by draughts, that's where I feel most at home.
What do I like?
I like a regular sip of lukewarm water, and I also like to get fertilizer once a month during the growing season.
Plantanious works together with the Work with Nature foundation. Our tropical rainforests are disappearing at a rapid pace and an enormous biodiversity is being lost along with the trees. If it were up to us, the jaguar would soon walk around again in the rainforest in Costa Rica protected by 'Adopt Rainforest'! The place where many of our special plants originate. In order to make an important contribution to the goal of the foundation - to protect 2,000 hectares of rainforest in the next ten years - we donate part of our turnover to protect part of the tropical rainforest. To achieve their goal, the foundation puts money into protection, conservation, reforestation, education and research.
