Ficus benjamina is frequently thought of as a fussy plant that will drop its leaves for no reason. This is not exactly correct, although there are some common conditions in most homes that will cause Weeping fig to be temperamental. Breeze Ficus is a lovely plant with glossy deep green leaves with a hint of yellow edging. The naturally weeping tree shape requires minimal pruning.

Best Locations For Growing Breeze Ficus

Ficuses are typically used to fill in or dress up a neglected corner of a room or an office. The tree form makes it an excellent backdrop for large displays of other tropical plants. When placed with other plants, Ficus will receive the correct humidity level needed to thrive and retain its leaves. Once a suitable location has been found for Ficus, resist the urge to move it around the house or outside for the summer months. Ficus does not like to be moved at all and will become so stressed that they drop their leaves and slow down growth. Keeping Ficus away from drafty doors and windows is also crucial for leaf retention. Ficus does exude latex sap from the stems and leaves, which is toxic to humans and animals.

Breeze Ficus Sunlight Requirements

Bright, filtered light is ideal, although Ficus will grow happily in medium light if the right humidity and temperature conditions are provided. Ficus grown in an office or commercial environment will benefit from artificial light during daytime hours if it is in a low-light position.

Breeze Ficus Care

Breeze Ficus is relatively fast growing and will need repotting every 1-2 years. Use a soil-based potting soil that has added perlite to keep the soil loose and fast draining. Ficus grow best when the temperature is consistent from day to night. The perfect range of temperature is between 68-85 degrees F. Air conditioning in the summer will stress out this tree if the temperature dips below 70 F. Keep the humidity levels around Breeze Ficus high. Either use a portable humidifier in the room where the plant is growing or lightly mist the leaves daily with water. 

Watering Breeze Ficus

Grow this plant in consistently moist soil that is not waterlogged. Let the top 1-2 inches of soil dry in between waterings. Ficus does not like to dry out completely and will react by dropping leaves. Growth will slow down in the winter, and the need for regular watering will also decrease. Expect some leaf drop at the change of seasons between summer and fall. This is also a good sign to reduce watering for the winter. 

Feeding Breeze Ficus

Ficus are heavy feeders and require regular fertilizing. Once a month, a slow-release granular feed can be applied to the top of the soil. At every watering, the fertilizer will be gradually dissolved into the soil. Use a balanced fertilizer that has a 10-10-10 NPK ratio. Reduce feeding to once every 2 months in the fall and winter when Ficus slows its growth.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
