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 every few months.

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.

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 repotted twice. Finger test to water when soil is dry. Hoping the recent repot and move won’t make it drop all its leaves 🤞

Make sure you keep it away from cats since they like to chew on it.

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, but if you stay consistent it’ll be happy. A very lovely looking plant!

Once you find its sweet-spot in the house it will thrive. Sadly, it took me a while and I’ve killed three.
They do get sunburnt. Don’t overwater.

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

I love my weeping fig bc it’s not fussy at all. The more attention I give it though, the more it thrives 😍

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 to get going in a northern MN home.
