    plz, I want to know the name of this plant, the frequency of watering, any tips to keep it healthy. taking into consideration that I am keeping it on my balcony with some direct sunlight where the temperature is nearly 35 celsius throughout all summer months here in Egypt…thanks in advance.

    Look like a weeping fig I think!

    It’s definitely weeping fig, the botanical name is Ficus benjamina as @stonerose noted! It’s one of the easiest ficus trees to care for. This one is special because of the white fringe along the edge of leaves – it’s not the ‘Starlight’ because it’s only a very thin edge. I’d say it’s the ‘Golden King’.

    There are tips for this species on the website here: https://www.nature-and-garden.com/gardening/ficus-benjamina.html

    They had one similar to yours in an airport I saw here’s the picture:

    It does look very nice, plus this one had that braided stem thing that makes it look really special.


    Loving the season!
