  • Details


    This is an elegant, easy to grow fig that can take the form of a small tree or a multi-stemmed, bushy plant. Slender, arching branches carry the shiny, dark and light green variegated leaves. In order for its variegation to stay prominent, the plant needs bright light. Placing it right in front of an east-facing or west-facing window is ideal. A southern exposure is also great. The plain old Ficus benjamina is very prone to dropping leaves when the plant is moved to a new location, but Anastasia has been developed to minimize this defect!

    Maintenance Notes: 
    • For optimal performance, keep at 60-85°F (15-29°C).
    • Protect furniture when watering.
    • Feed once per month at half strength when plant is actively growing.
    • This plant loves warm temperatures above 60 degrees, so be sure not to place it near a door or vent that will let in cold air. Average room temperature is just right. If you are comfortable, then your weeping fig will be too.
    • Allow the top inch or so of the soil to dry out before watering again.
    • Add some perlite and/or orchid bark to an all-purpose potting mix for a great growing medium.
    • Younger plants will grow fairly quickly and may need to be repotted every 1-2 years.
