Ficus Benjamina is a hardy tree growing to height of 60 ft and 60 ft - 70 ft spread. The dense and round canopy and the drooping branches of Ficus Benjamina makes it a quite popular landscaping tree. The thick, shiny, two to five-inch-long, evergreen leaves generously clothe the long branches, and the tiny figs eventually turn a deep red. Branches will weep toward the ground forming a canopy so dense that nothing grows beneath it.

Ficus Benjamina is best used as a hedge or clipped Tree to screen  boundry wall or any unwanted areas. It can also be seen growing into massive trees in parks and other large-scale areas. Aerial roots descend from the branches, touch the ground and take root, eventually forming numerous sturdy trunks which can clog a landscape. Trees can grow to be quite large and spreading in this fashion.
 
Able to tolerate severe pruning, Ficus Benjamina can also be successfully used as a clipped hedge or screen and is probably best used in this fashion, or can be trained into an espalier or topiary. Young trees are often grown in containers, appearing on patios, at entranceways, or indoors. Weeping Fig will grow in full sun or partial shade on any well-drained soil. Plants should be carefully watered when young and later during droughts. Plants are very frost-sensitive.

Problems: Avoid over watering the plant. The most common mistake people make is to add more water once the leaves begin to turn yellow. This is the opposite of what you should do. Always feel the surface of the soil with your finger tip. If it feels dry to the touch one inch below the surface, it is time to water. If the soil still feels moist, withhold water for a day or two.

No diseases are of major concern.
