About El Dorado Weeping Fig
The weeping fig, native to southeast Asia, is the official tree of Bangkok, Thailand. They make impressive additions to any living space, but in their natural habitat these trees can grow over 100 feet tall and provide food for many local bird species. In NASA’s 1989 Clean Air Study they were found to remove pollutants from the air. 💨
