Weeping fig / Ficus benjamina & bird cage planter

  • Position: bright but indirect light
  • Soil: good house plant potting compost
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)

    This ornamental fig is a graceful, weeping plant, with masses of slender, pointed, glossy green leaves that are perfect for softening any room. Brought together in combination with the zinc-grey overtone of a delightful birdcage (in which the fig can be planted or simply placed in its pot), the plant will spill out between the bars to soften and charm a heated conservatory or brightly lit room.

    This combination includes one Ficus benjamina 'Green Kinky' measuring approximately 27cm in heigth (+ or - 10% including the pot), and one bird cage planter, which measures 43.5cm and 17cm wide.

  • Home care: Keep in a bright spot away from direct sunlight, away from a close heat source like a radiator, and away from any draughts. Ficus don’t respond well to moving once the right spot is found. Water with tepid water when the top few inches of soil is just starting to dry out to avoid cold shock to the roots. During the winter, reduce the watering. Mist the leaves in the summer months, and feed with a liquid fertiliser during the growing season.
