The Ficus Benjamina Midnight Lady Plant Care :
Weeping Fig Light Requirements
Weeping figs prefer to be kept in bright sunlight, ideally with a bit of direct sun in the morning hours. Although it is often grown in a shady location when cultivated outside, when grown in a more controlled indoor setting, it needs more light to thrive.
Watering Weeping Figs
You should water your weeping fig regularly, keeping it steadily moist. As previously mentioned, the soil can’t be too waterlogged, as the plant will begin to drop leaves and can also suffer from fungal diseases like root rot. Let the soil dry out somewhat between each watering. When you water, use either filtered or distilled water that is room temperature to prevent shock.
If you notice that your plants’ leaves have become crunchy or bend easily, then you are not watering correctly. Crispy, crunchy leaves indicate underwatering, while leaves that fold too easily could be overwatered. When you water, make sure that some seeps from the topsoil to the drainage holes, and then remove any water if there is some left over after watering. During the winter, you can water less regularly.
Weeping Fig Soil
Weeping fig trees prefer well-draining potting soil. The best pH for your plant will be between 6.0 and 6.5 Anything with a lower pH will be too acidic, causing your tree to decline in health. Do not use any soils labeled for azaleas or roses, as these will naturally be too acidic.
