Ficus benjamin grows as a large broadleaf evergreen tree in tropical and subtropical climates, but it is more often grown as a houseplant in homes, offices, and is a popular feature in interior commercial landscaping.
Weeping fig is an elegant plant with slender branches that arch gracefully from a light gray trunk, with dense, glossy dark leaves that may shed when the plant is stressed. When grown indoors, the plants are normally pruned to keep them in

1-2m range, and trunks are sometimes braided for decorative appeal. In tropical climates, weeping fig can grow as 20m as specimen trees, and they are sometimes planted and pruned as hedges.
Weeping fig is one of the best plants for improving air quality indoors. It has one of the top removal rates for air toxins such as formaldehyde, benzene, and trichloroethylene.

PLANT CARE: 

  • Any good, fast-draining potting soil will likely do. Weeping figs do not require soil that is especially high in nutrients or organic matter. If re-potting, use a soil-based potting soil that contains perlite, sand, and vermiculite for improved drainage
  •  Water regularly, because the Ficus benj. Kinky does not like to stay dry too long. It likes the soil to be somewhat moist. But w out for soggy roots, no plant wants those. So do allow the top of the soil to dry out before watering. And let the pot drain completely before putting it back on the saucer or in its cache pot. Using a Sustee Moisture Meter stick helps to figure out how much moisture is in the soil so you don’t under or overwater.
  • The weeping fig needs a bright room with plenty of indirect light, and perhaps even a little direct sun in the morning. In its native habitat, it is often grown in semi-shady conditions, but indoors it needs good light to thrive. This plant dislikes being moved and may drop leaves if it is. It is important you find a good, bright spot for it and keep it there

 Height of the plant - 25 cm. Diameter of the pot - 17 cm. Sustee size M.

The height of the plant is measured from the base of the pot to the top of the plant.
The diameter of the pot is measured at the top part of the pot.
