Ficus benjamina, also commonly known as weeping fig, benjamin's fig or malayan banyan, is a very popular houseplant as they can maintain their tree-like shape regardless of their size. This and their slow-growing characteristic makes them ideal for bonsais and as container houseplants. The variegated variety enjoys medium to bright indirect and filtered light - bright, direct light may result in scalding of the leaves and leaf loss. They actually prefer temperatures above 21.C, which makes them the perfect plant for our tropical climate ;) Ficus benjamina also enjoys high humidity, but dislike overly-wet roots. Therefore, do check the top of the soil and only spray them with water when the soil feels dry to the touch. One thing to take note, the weeping fig really doesn’t like being moved around a home. Moving them kind of gives them a shock (they decide its time to drop leaves to produce new ones from the change in lighting, temperature, and humidity provided), which can leave a tree looking pretty bare. My advice would be to find a spot with the correct lighting, not close to any drafts in the home (from doors or windows) and then leave it to get comfortable. Only move if you realise it was not the best place, or if you really have to ;) Also, the Ficus benjamina is particularly good at filtering formaldehyde, xylene and toluene! What a pretty air-purifying houseplant! Terra Cotta pot measures approx 17cmA x 14cmH Only one pot of variegated ficus benjamina available, get it now!
