Planting And Care

 

Refer to our Beginner’s garden guide for detailed procedures and meanings of words related to gardening.

 

Sunlight:

Place the ficus near a window in a room that gets bright morning sunlight.

Turn the plant occasionally so all the growth does not occur on one side.

 

Soil: Use nutrient-rich, well-drained, well-aerated, and porous potting mix.

 

Watering:

Water a plant when the topsoil in the pot (5 to 8 cm) feels dry to touch.

Water thoroughly in the summer and reduce watering for the winter & rainy season.

Try misting the plant regularly to increase the ambient humidity.

Try to water the plants in the morning around 8-10 am.

 

Application of Fertilizer:

Apply fertilizer to a plant mostly in the spring and early monsoon season.

Loosen the topsoil without disturbing the roots so the plant can easily uptake the nutrients and moisture.

 

Re-potting:

When a plant outgrows the current pot, re-pot with fresh potting soil and some fertilizer.

Do the repotting late evening and keep the plant in a shady area for 2 to 3 days then move the plant to its required light condition.
