The first big plant I ever bought was my Ficus Benjamina. Shortly after I brought it to my old apartment, I moved to my new apartment. Unfortunately, when I moved it was during the middle of winter and the moving trucks back door was wide open for about 30 minutes while we were loading the couches, leaving my Benjamina exposed to negative temperatures. It lost all of its leaves and I thought it was dead. I cut the tree halfway down and decided to keep watering to see what would happen. Sure enough it grew back! Now I have a lovely (very short) Benjamina!
One of my cats loves to play with its leaves, so I always have to sweep up the leaves off the floor.
How to care for Ficus Benjamina:
Humidity: Higher than normal room humidity, it needs 60% to 70%.
Light: Bright indirect sunlight.
Fertilise: Monthly in growing season (April to September).
