The Weeping Fig, sometimes called the ficus tree, is a tropical evergreen tree that is often grown as a houseplant. People spot it in homes and offices for its elegant, slightly weeping shape and glossy evergreen leaves.
Though it grows up to 60 feet tall (18 m) in its native Asian or Australian rain forests, when placed indoors, it is usually pruned to six feet (2 m) or smaller. It is not a difficult houseplant to grow if you meet its needs in terms of light, water, and temperature. They also don’t like to be moved.
Wear gloves when handling the plant; some people find the sap a skin irritant. And do not consume any part of the plant.
