CareGeneral Maintenance: Prune your ficus to keep a consistent shape and form and to encourage a bushier appearance. Do most of your pruning in the winter while the plant is dormant. Repot to a larger pot once roots become visible around the drainage holes of the pot. Transplant in the early evening to give it a chance to recover from transplanting before receiving sunlight.
Temperature: Does well in temperatures between 15°C - 30°C .
Light: Prefers partial to full sun.
Watering: Water once soil becomes dry to the touch, and thoroughly water until water drains from the bottom of the pot. Allowing the plant to get too dry may lead to leaves dropping. Will do better if humidity is fairly high. Extra humidity can be provided by using a pebble tray or lightly misting.
Soil: Does well in any general houseplant soil mix. Make sure the soil is well-draining.
Fertilizer: Fertilize once a month, during the growing season, with a balanced liquid fertilizer.
