The Ficus, sometimes called Weeping Fig, does best in well lighted areas, but not much direct sunlight. In Summer give the Ficus plenty of water, enough to keep the soil evenly moist but not sopping wet. Fertilize with a liquid fertilizer twice a month in Summer (follow label instructions). In Winter, cut back on water somewhat and do not fertilize. Try to keep the atmosphere around the tree somewhat humid in winter during the heating season.
