Horty Hints

Stop the drop! This species of Ficus is picky when it comes to temperature changes, watering with lukewarm water will prevent lower leaves dropping.

Insufficient light or improper watering can trigger leaf drop. Find a bright spot and adjust your watering schedule. Your plant should quickly recover.

Trim to maintain the desired shape of your Ficus, but be aware that sticky latex will ooze from the ends of the cut stems. This can be an irritant, so make sure to wash your hands if any comes in contact with your skin.
