Ficus benjamina: The Elegant Weeping Fig

Ficus benjamina, also known as the Weeping Fig, is a popular and graceful indoor tree that belongs to the ficus family. Originating from Southeast Asia and Northern Australia, this evergreen plant is prized for its slender, drooping branches and glossy, lance-shaped leaves.

With its graceful appearance and relatively low-maintenance care requirements, Ficus benjamina is a popular choice for indoor greenery, adding a touch of elegance to homes and offices alike.


  • Foliage: The Weeping Fig's glossy, dark green leaves are gracefully drooping, creating a weeping or cascading effect. The leaves are generally elliptical and pointed, providing an elegant and refined appearance.
  • Size: Ficus benjamina can grow to a significant height indoors, making it an excellent choice for those seeking a tall, tree-like plant. It responds well to pruning if a more compact size is desired.
  • Trunk: As the plant matures, the trunk develops a smooth, grayish bark that adds to its aesthetic appeal.

Care Requirements:

  • Light: Ficus benjamina prefers bright, indirect light. While it can tolerate lower light conditions, it may lose some of its lower leaves in such situations. Protect it from direct sunlight, especially during the hottest part of the day.
  • Water: Keep the soil consistently moist, but avoid overwatering as it can lead to root rot. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering. Adjust watering frequency based on factors such as temperature and humidity.
  • Temperature: Ficus benjamina thrives in temperatures between 65°F to 75°F (18°C to 24°C). It can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures but should be protected from drafts and sudden temperature changes.
  • Humidity: While adaptable to average humidity levels, the Weeping Fig benefits from occasional misting, especially in drier indoor environments.
  • Pruning: Regular pruning helps maintain a desirable shape and size. Remove any yellowing or damaged leaves and trim back leggy growth to encourage a bushier appearance.
