Ficus Benjamina Braid (Weeping Fig)

Ficus Benjamina Braid (Weeping Fig)


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. It is a fast grower and may need to be repotted up to once per year. This tropical comes pre-potted in a decorative 14" ceramic planter.

  • Care Instructions


    The weeping fig needs a bright room with plenty of indirect light, and perhaps even a little direct sun in the morning. This plant dislikes being moved and may drop leaves if it is but they will grow back. It is important you find a good, bright spot for it and keep it there.


    Keep the plant steadily moist, but do not allow it to sit in water or it will drop leaves and may develop root rot.  Make sure your watering schedule is consistent.


    Any good, fast-draining potting soil will likely do.
