Light: Prefers bright, indirect light. For variegated Ficus, the plant may lose its beautiful variegation on new leaves if it’s not receiving enough sunlight.
Watering: Allow top 50% of soil to dry out, then water thoroughly. Water less often during the winter months as growth naturally slows.
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.
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.
