Various Types of Ficus benjamina / Weeping Fig

Ficus benjamina
Most people think of only a few types of Ficus benjamina trees, but in fact, there are many.

The weeping fig (Ficus benjamina) is the most common species of banyan growing in the tropics and is a very annoying weed, especially if they grow in residential areas such as between walls or roofs. It’s very ferocious roots can destroy anything if they are allowed to grow wild. Even the concrete and asphalt of the road cannot withstand the strangulation of the roots of Ficus benjamina.

There are still many people who maintain and even buy these tree seeds. The reasons vary, some consider the price easy, some make it as a bonsai material because it is considered easy to live and simple to maintain.

However, not all weeping figs are the same. Several members of the Ficus Study Group often show photos of unnamed weeping fig leaves, with different characteristics of color and shape.

In addition, several types of weeping figs already have names and are quite commonly sold in online plant markets. What are the types, here is the list:
