About Weeping Fig


Weeping fig or Ficus benjamina is a tropical tree native to Asia and Austraila. They have become a very popular houseplant due to their rare ability to cope well with lower light levels indoors, as well as for their attractive bushy appearance, and multiple growth forms from trees, to bushes and even bonsai.


In the wild weeping figs typically grow up to 30 metres tall, and they are frequently planted in parks and along roads in tropical regions. Ficus benjamina start life as strangler figs as seeds are spread by animals high up into the canopy of other trees. As the seed sprouts, roots from the Ficus benjamina grow down the trunk of the host tree, eventually strangling it.


Weeping figs like good bright, indirect sunlight and for their soil to be kept moist but not water logged. They hate being the cold, being moved frequently or being affected by draughts, so try to keep their climate as stable as possible.

The Weeping Fig is seen as a tree of peace; with the seeds in the fruit representing unity; apparently Buddha even gained enlightenment under a weeping fig!
