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…

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
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.
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

Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth during this time of higher sunlight intensity in Tampa, FL ☀️.️
This is a great time to watch your Weeping Fig thrive 🌿!
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.
