My poor baby, I almost killed the thing! Key to remember she does not take well to dehydration. But, I tagged her as a survivor because, with loving care and attention, she’s back and green. Though s…
I’ve had this plant since ~’97 and it has been neglected on and off over the decades but it comes back with some love/attention. It doesn’t like direct sunlight, drafts, or being moved. I have only r…
Beans was a gift from a friend so I’ve been trying my best to nurture her back to health after a near death experience. She gets very unhappy when I move her around too much, needs a lot of sunlight …
They like to have consistency with their watering, and their sunlight. They’ll be unhappy after being moved, or if your schedule for watering them changes. In my experience they don’t grow super fast…
My sister almost killed this plant a few years ago. I’ve been nursing it back to health since then. It looks a little sad, but it continues to get new green growth . My cats do enjoy stealing leaves …
Oh my word poor Benny! Lots of love and careful light/watering and he’s not acclimated well. It’s been 5 mos and he has about 14 leaves left. Consult/horticultural specialist and this baby is tough t…
Find a store in bright light and don’t move it. It likes to be trimmed. It’s good to you if you’re good to it. Overall ignore it and don’t over water but it does appreciate having its leaves dusted e…
It’s very sensitive, and doesn’t like to be moved around a lot. If you think it’s dead, it might not be. Mine was close, but I nursed it back to health and it’s even healthier and happier now
This beauty is 27 years old. Originally purchased as a small plant about 3” high, I’ve nurtured it and reported it when needed. It loves the light in my sunroom and just keeps on giving.
I have had this ficus for about 6 months. It’s positioned under a roof window, 1 meter away from it. The window is south facing. It is easy to care for, I feed and water weekly.
How to care for Weeping Fig
Weeping Fig needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Weeping Fig may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Select your region to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Weeping Fig in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Weeping Fig after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
