How to care for Ficus
Once they have settled into their new home, Ficus plants will thrive in a spot with plenty of bright, indirect light and consistent watering.
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 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:
- Under or over watering
- Low humidity
- Not enough light
- Change in temperature
- Recently repotted
