Ficus benjamina: "Starlight Weeping Fig" in 6" Nursery Pot


Note: Plants and pots sold separately, unless stated otherwise.


A sensitive but rewarding plant, the Ficus Benjamina is a classic houseplant that has been featured in well-designed houses for the better part of the last hundred years. It can be a bit sensitive, but that just makes it easier to know what it needs right? Once you've found a good spot for it in your home, keep it there. It doesn't like to be moved. 

Light: Bright indirect sunlight is the best for this plant, direct south facing sun could burn the leaves, but not enough sun and it won't respond well either 

Water: Water when 2-3 centimetres of soil are dry. You will likely water it around every 2 weeks in the winter and every week in the summer. If it is dropping leaves that can be because of a lack of water. It's better to err on the side of dry.

Humidity: This plant is very sensitive to humidity and will drop leaves if the humidity isn't above 50%
