Check the soil moisture before watering your ficus. You will find that the time between watering will vary with the season. To check, place your finger in the soil to a depth of 3-4 inches. If it feels wet, do not water. When watering, apply enough water until it runs out the drain holes at the bottom of the pot. Remove all the extra water from the saucer.
For optimum plant health, fertilize with an all-purpose houseplant food April through October, following label directions. For all other months, fertilize half as often.
