Hardy outdoors in ground to USDA zone 10 & fringes to zone 9b, in cooler climates it can be kept in a pot & brought indoors for the winter. Great bonsai material, It does well indoors in bright light, in an eastern or southern facing window, or in greenhouse. This plant is an excellent ornamental fig. Indoor care is similar to Ficus benjamina however f. cordata var. salicifolia is probably hardier than f. benjamina.
