Water and Soil
Though it depends greatly on the location and conditions in which your Ficus is being kept, these plants generally like to be watered thoroughly once a week. Allowing the top two inches of soil to dry out between watering’s is typically best. Ficus plants need a well-draining soil, one that is amended with either bark or perlite works well.
Temperature and Humidity
Ficus prefers a warm, room-temperature setting between 60 and 80 degrees F. The normal humidity of an average home works just fine. However, in the winter months provide extra humidity by misting the plant periodically or placing a humidifier in the room. Do not let your Ficus drop below 55 degrees F as it will not do well. While they can survive brief periods of below-freezing temperatures, the must be dormant so make sure your Ficus is tucked in during winter months.
