My ficus looks like it’s wilting? I watered it yesterday but it hasn’t seemed to revive. I think I left it a bit too long in between watering, is there anything I can do? #FicusElasticaTineke
3ft to light, direct
4” pot with drainage
Last watered 2 days ago

Leaf droop - over or underwatering
Remedy - always check the soil before watering a Rubber Tree. It should be dry to the touch before watering again. If you suspect it's been overwatered, allow soil to dry out completely before watering again.

Incorrect watering – Underwatering or overwatering both can cause a ficus tree to lose leaves. An improperly watered ficus tree may have yellowing leaves and the ficus tree leaves may curl. Water the soil only when the very top of the soil is dry, but also make sure that your ficus tree's pot has good drainage.

@Gordo what do you think?
@KikiGoldblatt I think you’re spot on. Hopefully it will recover quickly. Can sometimes take a day to recover.
@KikiGoldblatt thank you!!🀍
