The Q&A Archives: Braided Stem Indoor Plant

Question: I bought an indoor braided tree and I do not know what the name of it is. Would you have an idea?

Answer: Based on your description I believe you have a Ficus benjamina or weeping fig. This tree needs bright to moderate light and should be kept moist but not sopping wet. It should also be kept away from drafts. This tree hates change and may show its objection to the move by losing its leaves during the next week or two. They should grow back.
