Ficus benjamina is a tree reaching 30 metres (98 ft) tall in natural conditions, with gracefully drooping branchlets and glossy leaves 6–13 cm (2–5 in), oval with an acuminate tip. In tropical latitudes, the weeping fig makes a very large and stately tree for parks and other urban situations. Ficus benjamina is a very popular houseplant due to its elegant growth and tolerance of poor light conditions.
