Planting & Care
1. Planting: Your Ficus prefers indirect, bright light, although it can tolerate low- or medium-light areas. For best results, place it near (but not directly in front of) a sunny window.
When you're ready to repot (when. you can see roots growing out of the bottom of the container), select a pot that is approximately one to two sizes larger than the plant's shipped container and use well-draining soil. Make sure your post has proper drainage holes.
2. Watering: Allow the top layer of the soil to dry out completely, and then water deeply until water begins to drain from the holes at the bottom. Repeat this process as needed to ensure your Ficus is hydrated - generally once a week.
3. Fertilizing: It can be beneficial to feed your Ficus a light, water-soluble fertilizer once in the spring, and every month in the summer.
