Humidity

An occasional spray of mist is my beauty secret to looking fabulous!

Light

I can handle a little shade that's thrown my way, but I prefer to be in bright, indirect sunlight.

Watering

Everything in moderation is my motto, so I like to be watered little but often, keeping my soil moist.

Top tip

The Lil' Weeping Fig will drop its leaves when it's sad. Give it a little extra light or water to cheer it back up.

About Lil' Weeping Fig

It may be named the Weeping Fig, but this plant is anything but sad. The Ficus Benjamina Natasja will eventually grow into a bushy tree, but as a baby plant, it needs a little extra love before it's ready to fly the nest.

The Lil' Weeping Fig might take a while to recover from being delivered but give it a month or so and it will soon settle in. Just like a real baby, your baby weeping fig will thrive and quickly grow given proper care and attention. Place it in bright, indirect sunlight in temperatures around 16-24°C (min 12°C) and water it little and often, and soon your Lil' Benjamin Tree will be giggling with happiness. Your Weeping Fig doesn't like it too humid (but it is partial to the occasional mist) so place it in your living room, bedroom, or hallway.
