    The graceful habit of this foliage house plant, has made it a firm favourite for many years. Commonly known as the weeping fig, its branch tips are somewhat pendent - and they are covered in loads of pointed, rich green leaves, which have a subtle lustre.

  • Home care: It doesn't have many needs, as long as you find a bright spot away from direct sunlight, not close to a heat source like a radiator and away from any draughts it will usually be happy. Once it has the right place try not to move it as they don't like being moved around. Water with tepid water when the soil is just starting to dry out on the surface, but don't let it dry out completely. During the winter you can reduce the watering. Mist the leaves in the summer months, and feed with a liquid fertiliser during the growing season.
