TEMPERATURE: Room temperature from 15 degrees to 26 degrees. Avoid placing plants directly next to your radiators or air conditioning units.
HUMIDITY: Ficus will like a room with good humidity and other plants about.
DISEASES: Prevent diseases such as root rot by not over watering your plant, allow to dry out in between watering and keep your plant in a well ventilated spot. The sign of root rot usually shows as brown spots appearing on the leaves. To avoid this ensure your decorative pot has some clay pebbles or small stones in the base to act as a reservoir. When you water it the bottom of the inner plastic pot should never sit in a pool of water, this causes root rot. If your plant is too dry, the leaves turn brown and fall off.
ADDITIONAL CARE: Pruning in winter to keep it a bush shape for net season.
