Also known as Weeping Fig. It is most often used indoors as a house plant, as it will not survive below a temperature of 15 degrees celsius. The trunk and branches are moderately bendable, and can be braided or trained into pleasing, decorative shapes. The leaves are a glossy green, but may fall from the plant when it experiences light or temperature changes, and will develop new leaves that are adapted to the altered environment.
Preforms best in full sun, but can tolerate some low light levels. Best kept near a window that gets 4-6 hours of sunlight. Keep soil evenly moist through summer months and allowing it to dry slightly in winter. Can grow up to 1m tall, and even bigger if potted into larger containers. Pruning side branches promotes vertical growth.
