Fertilisation. Fertilise for a maximum of 6 months once every 30 days and use a mineral compound fertiliser.
Repotting. Repot every couple of years, however, larger specimens can be repotted regularly by replacing the top layer of substratum. Transplant a young plant in early spring each year and an adult plant (over 4 years old) once every two years (if the roots fill the entire pot). The soil mixture should be made up of equal proportions of potting soil, peat and sand. You can even find special soil mixtures for Ficus.
Pruning. Requires regular pruning and supportive stands.
1. Brown discolouration on the leaves, caused by regular water stagnation in the potting soil.
2. Leaf fall. This can occur if the room is too hot and the humidity is low.
3. Slow growth. Associated with a lack of nutrients or too little light.
4. False scales, spider mites, and mealybugs can infest the plant.
