3. Weeping fig (Ficus benjamina)One of the few trees that grows well indoors in containers, weeping fig normally grows to about two to three metres when kept indoors (higher when planted outside in warm gardens). Its leafy nature means a high rate of transpiration, which keeps the air around a weeping fig moist and cool. It can also decontaminate the air by absorbing any heavy metal particles that are present. Tip: Position plants in medium light and water regularly during warmer months, allowing the top half of the potting mix to dry out in between.
