Weeping fig, Ficus benjamina, is one of the most elegant indoor plants. Its graceful weeping branches bear glossy dark green or variegated leaves. It's ideal for growing in a well-lit room or conservatory.
For best results grow Ficus benjamina in a loam-based compost in full light, but not direct sun. From spring to summer feed every two weeks with a balanced liquid fertiliser and then sparingly in winter.
The sap of fig plants can be irritating to the skin and cause a severe reaction in hypersensitive people and pets.
