Light: Prefers bright indirect light. Harsh direct sun in the late afternoon may burn the leaves and cause them to drop. Brown spots on leaves indicates too much light—move plant back a little from window or place behind a sheer curtain.
Water: Water when top 50% of soil is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.
Consideration: Ficus plants are sensitive to being moved. If you have to move your plant around, do so gradually. Any sudden changes can cause leaves to drop.
Pruning wayward branches to keep the shape; the tighter you keep the leaves to the trunk, the fuller the plant will look. When pruning your plant, be careful of the milky latex substance that may leak out where cuts have occurred–this is a mildly toxic irritant. If you get the sap on your hands or skin, wash with warm water and soap.
