About 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. 💨

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.
What other plant parents say
I received this plant from my mom as a propagation. We didn’t know what kind of plant it was, I placed it all over the house and nothing really happened. It’s didn’t grow, but it didn’t die either. It was a really hardy plant. Thanks to this app, I was finally able to identify this plant. Once I put it in a spot with direct light it took off, this is about two years of owning this plant. M
Misting and direct sunlight are the keys to making this guy happy. Definitely recommend!
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 she may be frail, she’s not dead yet.
3/5 as she’s not an easy one to take care of, but she’s rewarding if you do it well.
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 but not too much water. Sheds leaves very easily but with a little love, new growth will always show
