This lovely ficus, also known as a Weeping Fig, is available with a dark green leaf or a lighter variegated leaf, and if you know how best to care for it, it will be a happy plant that will be with you for many, many years.
No Ficus likes a draught, but Ficus Benjamina is particularly susceptible to cold and will drop its leaves if it gets a chill, so be mindful about where you place it in the room. They prefer a warm spot and a bright indirect light, with the variegated variety being able to stand a brighter light than the dark green one.
The leaves like a humid environment, so standing the pot on a water filled pebble tray is ideal. However, they don't enjoy having damp roots, so be careful not to over water. Feel the soil with your finger and if the top inch or so feels dry then it's ready for a drink.
They need plenty of nutrients to grow well, so feed once a month with a good liquid feed in the Spring and Summer and reduce that to once every two months in Autumn and Winter.
Pot not included.
