This Tropical Rainforest Tree Is a Lush Addition to Interiors

With its slender gray trunk topped by a profusion of glossy green leaves, the Weeping Fig remains an incredibly popular choice. Native to Asia and Australia, Ficus Benjamina puts out small cream or yellow flowers which give way to orange spherical figs.

In an indoor container, the plant is slow growing but can reach a height of 12 feet. It likes a warm, humid, brightly lit spot away from direct sunlight. It also prefers to be kept in one position, and may show stress if moved around the house. Experts agree the #1 cause of leaf drop is overwatering. A good rule of thumb is to keep the soil moist, but never wet. Here’s another plus: the Weeping Fig is a great air quality improver.

Outdoors (zones 10 and 11), the plant can turn into a monster of a tree (up to 100 feet tall and 50 feet wide). Be sure to prune regularly to the height you desire. If choosing to plant outdoors, also remember to plant well away from your home. Its roots spread as fast as the tree grows tall, posing a threat to foundations. A minimum of 30 feet away from the house is recommended.

Both indoors and out, weeping fig sap can cause skin and eye irritation, and is toxic if ingested. Keep plants away from children and animals.

  1. John Daggers (verified owner)

    Appears healthy and robust but I do wish you had shipped in a taller box so as to have NOT trimmed off the top growth to make it “fit” into the box you shipped it to me. Again, a bit disappointed in the size of the weeping fig for $80. I was going to send you a photo of the fig the day it arrived and was taken from the box showing the extensive trimming on the top branches, but I am not sure how to do that on this site. I did however appreciate all your emails and notices about the shipment and that I was able to track the shipment to my NM location. Overall it was a good experience, thank-you.

    • Hillary (store manager)

      Hi John, We always pick the largest possible plant we have available for our customers for the size you ordered. We do mention if your plant exceeds the standard box dimensions, we may trim it accordingly. This will not harm your plant and will, in fact, promote new growth! The sizing of the weeping fig is as listed, we are glad you were happy with your experience with us! Feel free to reach out with any issues or concerns! Happy Planting 🙂

    I was very happy with the whole experience. This was the first time I have purchased a plant online and had it delivered and I was very impressed with the plant itself and how they packed it. It showed up in perfect condition. I ordered it on a Thursday and had it on Sunday. I will definitely order from plantvine again.

    Iordered 2 plants from PlantVine and when they were arrived (3 days later than FedEx stated) 1 plant was in real bad shape. I sent pictures and a email to PlantVine the next day and within a couple of hours a representative of PlantVine, Hillary called me. She was very pleasant and understanding of how the plant looked upon arrival. Without hesitation she stated a replacement would be sent out ASAP. I just received my replacement and it has lost a few leaves but is in great shape. I would buy again from this store and a big Thank You to Hillary and PlantVine for great customer service.

    The Weeping Fig was one of four plants I ordered from PlantVine. It did lose a few leaves on its shipping journey, but that was completely expected and did not take away from its beauty. The plant arrived very healthy and well packaged, with minimal soil spillage. I have to say I was very impressed with how the plants were packaged and shipped. Very pleased with my purchase and will definitely shop here again!

    Arrived healthy and beautiful. Was so scared that with the hot weather and mailing delays that it would not be good, but it was ok. I did realize when I saw the flyer that was included that I ordered the wrong ficus, I wanted the long leaf one. But, I am very happy with my purchase.

    Well-packed & super fast shipping, arrived just 3 days from ship date. My Ficus, unfortunately, lost a lot of leaves in the box & is still going through an adjustment period (they don’t like to be moved). It has a lot of bare bottom/underneath branches & I’m hoping in a few weeks it will all fill in. Great customer service too. Will be ordering all my big plants from PlantVine from now on.
