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

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.
