Recently Shipped Ficus benjamina 'Wintergreen', Weeping Fig


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.

    So happy with my little tree. It was just as pictured when it arrived and is slowly adapting to its new home. Already planning my next purchase!

  2. Paula P. (verified owner)

    The process of buying my tree on-line was quick and easy. Not only that but my tree was delivered within a week or so. I’ve never bought a tree on-line but plan to again in the future with PlantVine. I’m enjoying my Ficus tree and can’t wait to watch it spread out and grow. Thank you for your service.

  3. Steve Madison (verified owner)

    Expected the tree to be bigger. In the marketing picture the tree was as tall as the girl (even if she was only 5’ that would have been OK). My tree (XL) is only 4’3”.

  4. Lisa (verified owner)

    Love my tree… hopefully it likes its new home …it came perfectly wrapped can’t wait to watch it grow

  5. Nancy D. (verified owner)

    So far, so good… had it for a couple days…. the plant’s leaves are still a little “squished” together from shipping – I assume it will spread out … also hoping it doesn’t drop too many leaves…

  6. Dawn S. (verified owner)

    Beautiful tree! It was a gift and the person was so happy with it and so was I dor the price!

  7. Nancy H. (verified owner)

    Our ficus seems to like its new home just fine and leaf drop thus far has been minimal. It was well packaged and very healthy. Thanks for the great attention you gave the order.

  26. Anonymous (verified owner)

    I hate leaving a negative review, but my plant arrived 2 weeks ago and is almost bald! I would suggest not ordering during the extreme hot weather. When the tree arrived the soil was completely dry. I really don’t think it’s going to make it. I’m sure it was beautiful when it was shipped, but it looked very sad upon arrival. I’m trying to figure out a solution with customer service.

  27. Morgan (verified owner)

    Still dropping leaves

  28. Jean Jacobson (verified owner)

    it is loosing leaves

  29. Linda (verified owner)

    I’m sad, i got it on Thursday and this ficus is really in danger of dying right now (it’s Tuesday) leaves are curling and falling off in droves (more than just plant moving trauma)

  30. Randolph Phillip Dale (verified owner)

    The Ficus Benjamina plant has arrived and I’m thrilled! As the accompanying information made clear, there may very well be a loss of leaves during and after the shipping. There was indeed. The plant looks somewhat worse for the wear. I made sure to complete all the recommended steps. Now it’s just a waiting game. I’ll be sure to keep a close eye on the plant. Thanks for communicating what to expect and what to do.

Does this tree bear fruit? I’m planning on keeping it indoors, what happens to the figs…rot?

1 month 1 day ago

Hi Christina

Ficus benjamina wintergreen are elegant houseplants grown as an indoor tree with shiny green leaves that clean air indoors.
Indoor weeping figs will not produce fruit because the tree must be outdoors and pollinated by bees to grow figs/fruits.
