6" Ficus benjamina 'El Dorado'


 Bright indirect light

 Allow soil to dry almost completely


This plant is currently out of stock.

Ficus benjamina 'El Dorado', commonly referred to as a "Weeping Fig", is a show stopper with its small, white and green variegated leaves.

These plants make great indoor statement pieces due to their easy care requirements.  You can expect your plant to grow about 1-2' per growing season, with the proper care.

Ficus benjamina 'El Dorado' care:

This plant prefers a well draining soil that is rich in organic matter.  Allow your Ficus to dry out almost completely before watering, taking care to not allow it to sit in excess water.  Provide your new Ficus benjamina with plenty of bright indirect light.  When finding a suitable home for your Ficus, make sure to not put it near any drafts as this can cause it to drop leaves.

Additional information:

Lovely plant, stunning variegation

This is very different than any ficus I’ve owned before but it’s a stunning addition to my collection. I really love the variegation and can’t wait to watch this one keep growing.

Great plant, great experience

Canopy Plant Co was the only source I could find for this new-to-me cultivar. The plant arrived expertly and lovingly packaged. It was healthy and bushy (enough so that I was able to separate it into two plants. Totally satisfied.

Variegated ficus is a great find

I like different kinds of focus that I try to keep smal, kind of bonsai-like. I'm glad to add this irrigated ficus benjamina to my collection. Arrived in perfect shape. Thank you!
