More about your Ficus plant
Ficus trees are a common plant in the home or office, where they bring the outside in and provide an easy-to-care-for way of bringing a space to life. Also known as the 'weeping fig', this genus includes rubber and fig fruit trees. These large trees maintain shape as they grow, making good bonsais or large houseplants. Most Ficus trees prefer bright but indirect light, as direct light can scald the leaves. They should be kept away from drafty areas and in warmer spaces above 21 c to get the best growth. It is essential to keep the air around your Ficus humid, so we would recommend a pebble tray or regular misting to keep the leaves glossy and to look great
Am I watering my Ficus enough?
Whilst Ficus trees like humidity, they don't like wet roots. You should only water when the top level of the soil is dry. They will need more watering in the warmer months, and if you find that the soil is going drier faster than you expect, it may be time to repot the plant in a larger pot. These plants are rapid growers and require plenty of nutrients to grow well. Fertilize once a month in the spring and summer and once every two months in the autumn and winter
Why is my Ficus losing its leaves?
Dropping leaves is a common problem with Ficus trees and is how they react to stress. If you find that your tree is dropping leaves, then it could be caused by the following:
•Under or over watering
•Not enough light
•Change in temperature
