Ficus Alli Standard (also known as Weeping Fig) is an evergreen tree that thrives as a houseplant and can live for many many years.  It produces longer and thinner leaves compared to other ficus varieties, but with the same highly glossy look.  It is also a great air purifier.

Care

General Maintenance: Repot every 1-2 years when plant becomes rootbound.  Can be pruned to control size/height of the plant.  Can be propagated by rooting stem cuttings in water.  Wipe leaves down with a damp cloth every few weeks to remove any dust or debris and allow the plant to absorb as much sunlight as possible.  Ficus trees tend to drop leaves when they are moved, but recover quickly once settled.

Temperature: Thrives in normal household temperatures, between 15ºC-26ºC.   Keep away from drafts and drastic temperature changes.

Light: Ficus love plenty of bright indirect light.  Direct sun may scorch the leaves.  Can tolerate slightly lower light levels, but this will result in a significantly slower rate of growth. 

Watering: Water when the top 2-3 inches of soil are dry to the touch.  Do not let the soil dry out entirely.  Ensure your pot has proper drainage to avoid overwatering as this will cause the plant to drop leaves, as well as potentially causing root rot.

Soil: Any high quality, well-draining potting mix will work well.  Avoid heavy/muddy potting mixes as these plants do not like to sit in excess moisture.

Fertilizer: Feed with a liquid houseplant fertilizer once every 3-4 weeks during the spring and summer months.
