Ficus Benjamina 'Weeping Fig'
Ficus Benjamima is a wonderful low-maintenance house plant. This is baby version of a more established plant. It will need re potting in the spring and every 6-12 months to encourage growth.
Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate partial shade. Direct sunlight may scorch the leaves.
Water when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. Keep the soil moist at all times, but do not over water as this will cause leaf drop. Avoid cold draughts, and occasionally mist the leaves.
Leaf drop may occur with insufficient light or incorrect watering. Adjust as necessary and your plant should quickly recover.
Prune to maintain shape and desirable height. Be aware of the sticky latex that will ooze from the ends of the cut stems; this can be an irritant.
