They have pointed glossy dark green leaves, short boughs and a dark grey trunk. If this trunk is cut you will see milky liquid coming out
Ficus benjamina is a very popular houseplant in temperate areas, due to its elegant growth and tolerance of poor growing conditions; it does best in bright, sunny conditions but will also tolerate considerable shade. It requires a moderate amount of watering in summer, and only enough to keep it from drying out in the winter. It does not need to be misted. The plant is sensitive to cold and should be protected from strong drafts.
Landscape UseGrown in gardens , landscaping, grassland, in tropical latitudes the it makes a large and stately tree for parks and other urban situations, such as wide roads, elsewhere and indoors as a houseplant.
Use a well draining soil to pot the ficus. You can alternatively also use a combination of coco peat, perlite and compost. Over watering is as detrimental as under watering for ficus. Make sure you pour just enough water into the pot to seep through the drainage holes. Best way to measure it are the leaves. If the leaves fold easily, you make have over watered it. If the leaves are crinkly you may have under watered it.
