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…
Environment change can affect the plant a lot and it is very easy for it to shed leaves. However it also grows fast so it kinda makes up for it
very fast grower and will survive pretty much any treatment but it does lose a lot of leaves if you don’t take very good care of it
I love my weeping fig bc it’s not fussy at all. The more attention I give it though, the more it thrives 😍
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 city 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.
