Light & Location
During the spring and summer, put it in a brightly lit spot away from any direct light. Excessive exposure during this time will negatively affect the plant in the likes of sunburn and dehydration. When it gets to autumn, put the plant on a spot where it can get an hour or two direct light per day to get it through the dormancy period.
Allow the top third of the doil to dry between watering. Weeping Figs have delicate root systems so don’t use cold water when you do top them up and make sure the water drains out of the pot to help prevent root rot.
Keep your weeping fig in a stable, humid environment. Consider using a pebble tray (or frequent misting) for optimum conditions. Signs of an under-humid room are primarily similar to inconsistent fluctuations, with slowed growth, browning leaf-tips and leaf loss. Never put in a cold drafty spot, like near doors or windows, as it can’t tolerate cold temperatures.
