X-ray of Ficus benjamina (Benjamin Ficus)


Fine Art print of X-ray Photograph of Ficus benjamina (Benjamin Ficus), originally made by Tor G.

Can be allergenic and simultaneously binds toxins in the air.


The large, varied fig genus includes many of our most popular house plants. Who hasn’t failed to keep a Benjamin fig alive in their youth? This evergreen tree from tropical Asia can be about 15 meters tall and much wider, because it develops natural support in the form of aerial roots. It has hanging branches (it is also known as a weeping fig), with shiny, pointy leaves and inconspicuous fruits. The branches are easy to bend and shape. The name Benjamina means aromatic resin.


The Benjamin fig is the official tree of Bangkok; in Sweden, it is common in waiting rooms and libraries, perhaps because it is said to absorb and bind toxins in the air, such as gas, formaldehyde and xylene. On the other hand, the Benjamin fig can also cause allergies in some people.
