- Somewhere with plenty of light but also protected from the full strength of the mid-day sun. Mornings and evenings are not a problem and will even be appreciated! The ideal place is about 3 metres from the window. This plant tolerates quite a bit of shade and even 6 metres from a window should not cause problems.
- Somewhere warm, (between 18 and 23 degrees centigrade). If you have underfloor heating, so much the better. Standing your Weeping Fig above or next to a radiator is not a good idea as the warm air flow from the heating will dry the plant out much quicker which could result in the loss of leaves or them turning brown.
The weeping fig is fairly resistant to the dry indoor air of our homes.
You can easily prune this plant, removing bare branches when necessary. When you find the right spot for this plant it will feel very much at home and will have no difficulty of growing new branches and producing new leaves.

In temperate climes, the weeping fig (Ficus benjamina) makes a very popular houseplant, reaching up to 3 metres - pruning will help and can be done any time.
