What is commonly referred to as a ficus is a weeping fig.

It’s a member of the Ficus genus of plants, which also includes rubbers trees and fig fruit trees. When it comes to ficus houseplants, most people refer to a weeping fig (Ficus benjamina) as a ficus.

Ficus plants are used primarily as a houseplant or in commercial premises as office plants but ficus plants can be a little fussy. Most ficus plants enjoy a bright indirect position.

A bright, direct light may result in scorching of the leaves and leaf loss. Ficus trees also cannot tolerate low temperatures or drafts. Cold drafts from windows or doors will harm them and kill them in the end.

The ficus, together with the dracaena, is a very popular houseplant. The orchid is also a favorite plant for many.
