The weeping fig is a large evergreen tree that can also be grown as a shrub or houseplant. It has glossy, attractive leaves. It can grow in full sun or shade on well-drained soil. In warm climates, it can become invasive, with ground roots lifting pavement and aerial roots forming strong trunks. Therefore pruning is necessary. The fruit can also stain surfaces it comes into contact with. This type has multiple trunks braided together which makes it very interesting to decore offices and houses.
