Caring for your Ficus Benjamina (Weeping Fig):
Light: This plant prefers bright light that is partially shaded. A spot that receives some sun and shade during the day is great. Do not move the tree, not even turning it around to prevent leaves being shed.
Water: Allow the compost to dry at the top between each watering with tepid filtered or distilled water. Over-watering and under-watering can cause the leaves to drop. Add enough water that can seep from the top soil to the drainage holes, at the bottom of the container and remove the left over water to allow enough oxygen to the plant roots. This plant needs watering less in the winter.
Temperature: Room temperatures of around 65°f / 16°c --- 75°f / 24°c is ideal. Try not to allow temperatures to decrease lower than 50°f / 10°c, although they can handle a bit lower, without problems.
Humidity: Misting the leaves in the summer is advised.
Pet Safe: This plant is toxic to both cats and dogs.
