Easy Care


An exceedingly beautiful Ficus adorned with mid-green and cream-edged oval leaves!

The Weeping Fig 'Twilight' is a member of the Moraceae family (scientific name: Ficus benjamina). The Moraceae family is commonly referred to as the 'Mulberry' family, this is the same family that Figs belong to! 

Weeping Figs are exceptional house plants and can be often found in malls and office buildings. They do well when they are given their own space with lots of bright light. Be mindful that these plants do not like to be moved or stressed by drastically changing conditions. They are famous for throwing a fit and shedding their leaves when they have become stressed. That being said they are easy to take care of as long as you do not become neglectful. 

  • Easy to care for house plant in the right conditions
  • Famous plant for offices and living rooms
  • Exotic plant with light variegation on their leaves
  • BBX Top Tip: Create a watering routine early on, this is guaranteed to keep your weeping fig happy! As both under and overwatering are leading causes of rapid leaf loss
  • Member of the ficus family with leaves that hang downwards giving them a soft delicate appearance!

Weeping Fig 'Twilight' Care Guide

Light

Prefers bright, indirect light, but will tolerate partial shade. Watch out! Direct sun on the leaves will cause the variegation to burn

Water

Check the water level in the soil once a week. The soil should be ever so slightly damp, not dry. Allowing the soil to dry out completely will cause leaf drop. Water when the top 5 - 8 cm of soil has become dry

Temperature

The weeping fig prefers temperatures in the range of 16-24 °C. No cold drafts

Feeding

Using a balanced fertilizer, follow the directions on the label and feed every two weeks during the growing season (Spring to Early Autumn). During the winter, cut back on feeding to once every 4-6 weeks

Grooming

Give your weeping fig light trimmings to maintain its shape, beware of the sticky sap that will ooze from fresh cuts. We recommend wearing gloves

Care

Use a damp cloth, and gently wipe the top and underside of the leaves. This should be done every two weeks to prevent dust build-up or pests from taking up residence
