for your Ficus
The ficus is a member of the weeping fig family. They like
temperatures of 55 degrees on the lowest end to tropical climates.
They are grown in greenhouses at 500Ė600 foot-candles of light
for rapid growth but growers usually reacclimatize them down to
around 300 foot-candles. Without skylights they should be placed
2-4 feet from a window to give them adequate lighting. They are
sensitive to drafty areas and sudden temperature changes. The root
ball must always be moist on a ficus. This is a good plant to use
a moisture meter on. Water until the meter reads wet and withhold
watering until it reads moist.
If a ficus is dropping yellow leaves, it means it is too dry. If
it drops green leaves, it is too wet or it doesnít have enough
light to support the amount of leaves that it has.
