The weeping fig is a miniature topiary tree with a unique bundled trunk, large arching branches and long, glossy, pointed leaves that droop in a “weeping” manner to give the tree its name. It’s a great air-purifying plant and adds an attractive green element to any decor. Plus, its care couldn’t be easier; just keep it in bright, indirect sunlight at room temperature and water once a week.
The weeping fig stands 12-15 inches tall, with a diameter of 8-10 inches, and comes in a 5-inch pot.
Water with 6 ice cubes, equivalent to ¾ cup of water, once a week.
Place in bright, indirect sunlight. Leaves can burn if the sunlight is too direct or intense.
Place in temperatures between 65-85°F, never below 55°F
