Weeping Fig 'Kinky' | Ficus Benjamina 'Kinky'

Somewhere between bush, shrub and tree, I have delicate branches with small, drooping leaves. My leaves are a rich green, with lighter green shading round the edges.

Useful to know:

Origin

I am a a species of flowering plant in the Moraceae family, native to Asia and Australia.

Height/Growth

I can eventually grow to a height of 2m.

Light

I do not like direct sunlight as it damages my leaves, a mixture of light and shade is best.

Water

I like humid conditions but beware of overwatering me.

Temperature

I like to be kept warm, so temperatures between 16-24°C are ideal for me.

Feeding

Fertilize me once a month in the spring and summer, and once every two months in autumn and winter.

Grooming

I won't need much pruning. I keep my tree like form as I grow.

Care

If the tips of my leaves are turning brown, and you know it's not due to overwatering, I might need more humidity. You can increase humidity around me by popping me on top of a damp pebble tray.

Toxicity

Keep me away from pets and children as I can be toxic.

Fact

I am a true long-life indoor plant: it'll be 10 years until I reach maturity.
