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.htmlAugust 11, 2021 at 8:26 am ReplyFatzoPrivate messageGreen Thumb
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!
